Accident reconstructionists can determine liability

With an increasing number of vehicles on the roadways, minor automobile accidents are common in Texas. However, when a tractor-trailer is in a crash, there are often multiple cars affected. At The Law Offices of Miller & Bicklein, P.C., we often represent clients injured in accidents as the result of big rig driver negligence.

Big trucks weigh significantly more than passenger cars and light trucks. When loaded, the trailer’s added weight can make an accident deadly. If the crash occurs on the highway, where speeds are high, it can happen very fast. Even eyewitnesses may have varying versions of what happened. Alliance Marketing & Insurance Services reports that, in these situations, an accident reconstructionist can be invaluable for determining the accident’s cause.

Experts in causation forensics determine why and how a crash happened by investigating it from several perspectives. They interpret the information found at the scene and work backward from the time of the accident and study events leading up to the crash. Speed, road conditions, defective tires and poor visibility are among the top contributing factors in traffic accidents.

If the driver of an 18-wheeler drove too fast for the conditions, disregarded safety measures or drove while intoxicated, they may be liable for the crash. Accident reconstructionists specializing in traffic collisions are typically retired police officers, engineers and other individuals who have many years’ experience working in related fields. They often work with legal teams and act as expert witnesses during the trial. Visit our webpage for more information on this topic.
