Lawrenceville Attorneys Thoroughly Investigate Car Accidents
Experience and diligence advance your claim for personal injury damages
When we undertake a car accident case at Pearson Law Group, LLC, we focus all of our knowledge, experience and energy on getting the best possible results for our clients. That means maximizing the compensation you receive through either a settlement or a jury award. Two key elements of the case help us maximize your award: proving the cause of the accident and demonstrating the full extent of your injuries. When a judge or jury understands that you were a victim of someone else’s negligence and that your injuries are truly severe, you have a compelling case for the full compensation you are seeking.
Understanding the art and science of accident reconstruction
A critical question in any car accident case is, “Who or what caused the crash?” In our practice, we have ample experience with a variety of car crash scenarios, including:
- Head-on collisions
- Rear-end collisions
- Side-impact collisions
- T-bone crashes
- Vehicle rollovers
- Intersection crashes
- Highway crashes
Because of our past experience we can often intuit what happened, but intuition does not pass for proof in a court of law. What’s required is investigation and firm evidence.
In some cases there are witnesses, but witnesses often disagree and studies have shown eyewitness testimony to be surprisingly unreliable. The plaintiff and defendant each have an interest in the case, so their testimonies have to be taken with a grain of salt. Very often our firm will consult a qualified expert in accident reconstruction to examine the physical evidence and the accident scene to determine why the crash occurred.
Accident reconstruction experts are engineers who use various scientific techniques to reproduce the speed and placement of vehicles at the time of the crash. They also reconstruct the environment at the time of the crash. With reliable precision, our experts are able to pinpoint causes of car accidents, which often include:
- Driver error
- Mechanical failure
- Poor road design or maintenance
- Weather conditions
- Lighting and visibility
Once we’ve determined how the accident happened, we also know who is responsible, and we’re ready to hold them accountable.
Proving the full extent of your car accident injuries
But what are we holding the defendant accountable for? The short answer is “your injuries,” but the complete answer is more complex. Not all concussions are the same, nor are all broken arms. We want the judge and jury to understand the extent to which you are currently suffering and how much you can be expected to suffer in the future. Only then can you expect to recover full compensation for:
- Future medical expenses
- Future lost earnings
- Loss of quality of life
- Loss of enjoyment of life
These and other categories of damages can be highly speculative. It’s our job to take the mystery and guesswork out of these damage items by consulting qualified experts in medicine, rehabilitation, and finance. We also interview close associates of yours who can attest to the difference between your life before and your life after the accident. For severe injuries we go into a great amount of detail, so there can be no question in the jury’s mind about the full compensation you deserve.
