Should I have an expert testify in my bicycle accident injury case?


Yes, if you have been injured in a bicycle accident, you should use an expert to testify on your behalf. Experts have much more extensive knowledge regarding bicycles, their safety, and design that the average citizen will not have, and Illinois courts will allow a variety of bicycle experts to testify including engineering consultants, bicycle designers, experts in bicycle accident reconstruction, and expert riders and former bicycle racers.

Bicycle experts will look at and analyze all the different aspects of a bicycle accident, including police reports, the actual crime scene, weather conditions at the time of the accident, and the bicycle and its design. They will use all of this information to render an opinion as to what may have happened and what factors contributed to the accident. The use of experts often leads to more successful resolutions in negotiations and maximum compensation when a case proceeds to trial.

If you or a loved one was involved in a bicycle accident through no fault of your own, you deserve compensation for your damages. Using expert testimony in a bicycle accident is just one tool available to you. An experienced personal injury lawyer can walk you through the entire claims process and ensure that you have someone in your corner whether you need help with insurance company negotiations or your bicycle accident case proceeds to trial.
