The Benefits of Expert Testimony in a Rollover Car Accident Case

If you are the victim of a vehicular rollover accident, Texas and wish to file a lawsuit and recover for your injuries, you will undoubtedly require expert testimony in support of your case. Expert witness testimony in these types of cases is absolutely crucial. The reasoning behind this is that vehicle rollovers are usually due to some defect in the manufacturing of your vehicle or tires and to prove that this defect caused your accident you need testimony from experts that have specialized knowledge on the structure of the faulty products to establish liability. The role of expert witness testimony in these kinds of cases will be discussed below, emphasizing both the importance of such testimony and the impact it will have on your case.

What Role Does Expert Testimony Play in Establishing Liability in Rollover Cases?

In a Texas rollover accident, there are a number of issues that must be touched upon when determining who may be held liable and many of the things that must be evaluated to figure out how the rollover occurred are very complex. The technical aspects of how the roof caved during the rollover and the suspension and stability of the vehicle are things that are not common knowledge. An expert can testify to whether this particular rollover would have occurred had certain factors not be present, and discuss hypothetical scenarios in front of the jury that will paint a picture in their minds. Because they are not common knowledge is exactly what makes an expert witness necessary.

If your case ends up reaching the trial stage, in order to reach a verdict in your favor you must convince the jury that the rollover could not have been prevented by you. Actually, you are going to convince them that this accident occurred wholly on the part of some other party, specifically the company responsible for manufacturing some product on your vehicle. The other side is going to argue that this was your fault, and had nothing to do with any product or piece of equipment they manufactured. An expert in the related field can explain the technical and highly complex issues in a way that the jury can understand, so that they can put the blame on the party that deserves it. Moreover, expert testimony is typically reliable and believable because your expert will have specialized knowledge and training that renders his opinion completely trustworthy. You need to prove to the jury that this was accident occurred by no action or failure to take action on your behalf, and an expert witness will do just that.
