What Does Accident Reconstruction Do for My Case?
An expert in accident reconstruction will:
- Review all of the facts of your accident based on photographs, witness testimonies, and police reports.
- Examine your injuries and damages and find the relationship they have to your accident.
- Determine the magnitude of impact, the physics of the crash, and how fast each vehicle involved was traveling.
Accident reconstructionists are experts in their field. They don’t take their job lightly and will use all of the available data they have in combination with forensic science to come to accurate conclusions about your accident.
Accident reconstruction isn’t pseudoscience, and it isn’t based on any guesswork. It uses math and science to describe how an accident occurred as much as possible. If your accident has some grey area to it, an accident reconstructionist can be of great help when building a strong case for your claim.

Benefits of Accident Reconstruction
Accident reconstruction does take some time, but your patience will be well rewarded with several benefits:
- Your accident gets definitively analyzed, and scientifically backed conclusions get made.
- The findings from accident reconstruction can be used as evidence during negotiation or trial.
- You can fill in the gaps on any important information that is missing from your case.
Insurance companies are known to scrutinize every single detail about an accident and how you got your injuries, especially if your settlement amount is high. They’re not going to simply pay you your fair share without first putting up a fight. Accident reconstruction can help prevent the insurance company from warping the context of your car accident against you.
Don’t Wait Too Long to File your Claim
While you shouldn’t rush blindly to file your claim as fast as possible, waiting too long won’t do you any favors either. It takes some time to build a strong case and to let an accident reconstructionist do their work thoroughly. You should aim to get started on your claim with your lawyer soon after your accident.
Remember, evidence degrades as time passes. Witnesses fail to remember key details, your injuries heal, and other important evidence about your accident can get lost. The more your accident’s evidence deteriorates, the harder it will be to reconstruct it as accurately as possible.
Get treated for your injuries as quickly as possible and take as many photos of all your damages. Just in case filing takes too long, you still have photographic evidence that can help piece together what happened during your crash.
Statute of Limitations in Savannah
Under the Official Code of Georgia Annotated (OCGA) §9-3-33, car accident victims have two years to file their claim, or else their right to pursue compensation expires. Two years isn’t a long time, and many people pass this deadline before they even get the chance to file. Don’t end up paying out of pocket for damages that weren’t your fault.
Let our accident reconstruction lawyers help you.
Don’t Let Insurance Companies Shift the Blame On You
Insurance companies have lots of resources and a strong legal team to back them during settlement negotiations. They may try to put pressure on your claim by shifting the blame of the accident on you. With little proof on your end, you may feel trapped and unable to defeat their defense.
With the aid of strong legal representation and testimony from an accident reconstruction expert, you can turn the tide of your fight in your favor. You don’t have to settle for less. Get the boost you need to resist the insurance companies’ tactics and get a fair settlement for your damages.
