In some car accident cases, the evidence isn’t as clear as one would hope. But this is where experts can help by providing well-reasoned opinions that can assist the judge and jury in interpreting complex evidence.

- An employment expert who can help show how your injuries will affect your ability to work and progress in your career. This can help show anticipated lost wages and lost earnings capacity.
- An accident reconstruction expert who can help you demonstrate how the accident occurred and who is to blame for it.
