Do You Need More Than One Accident Reconstruction Expert Witness?

Be sure to research and give serious consideration to the area of expertise you will need in an expert witness for your case. A few hours on cases analysis and background reading can save wasted time and money later down the road. If the case warrants it, it may be advantageous to hire more than one expert. For example, in an accident reconstruction case, this will allow you to:

1. Have the accident reconstruction expert witnesses compete and select the stronger one to testify at trial
2. Designate both as trial experts but keep one in reserve
3. Keep one expert as a consultant for testing untried theories
