At any point during the day, over 600,000 people are on a cell phone or using an electronic device while driving (NOPUS). If an individual is involved in a car accident while using a cell phone, there is a high probability that he or she will be sued. The reason for this is due to negligence. Whether you are the plaintiff or the defendant, an expert witness can provide the expertise that is required to scientifically prove who is at fault in a car accident case.
According to CTIA, 153.3 billion text messages were sent in the United States every month as of December 2013. Also, 25% of teenagers respond to a text message once or more each time they drive, and 10% of parents admitted to having multi-message text conversations while driving (UMTRI).
In 2010, the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration implemented a ban that prohibits drivers from texting while driving. However, there are still Car Accident injuries that happen everyday due to a distracted driver, which is why an expert witness should be consulted.
Saponaro, Inc. has a network of credentialed expert witnesses that focus on car accident cases involving (but not limited to):
- Texting while driving
- Car-pedestrian collision
- Uninsured drivers
- Employer liability
- Cellular phone usage
Our expert witnesses can assist a car accident case in the following ways:
- Reconstruct a collision through computer simulation techniques, or accident speed determinations. An accident reconstruction expert will look at steering angles, speed, acceleration, braking characteristics, and more during an analysis. Their expert reports and testimony provide useful information for judges, lawyers, attorneys, and jurors.
- A professional car accident expert witness always states the facts. For example, if someone is accused of negligent driving because of talking on a cell phone during an accident, an expert witness can analyze call logs to determine if a call was made during the course of events.
- When there is a car accident that results in a motor vehicle death, an expert witness will be able to determine the extent of the injuries caused by the collision. What the expert witness determines may prevent a trial, and garner a large settlement amount.
Let Saponaro, Inc. provide you with the perfect expert witness to help win your case. We offer the most dedicated and experienced team of professionals in the nation.
