Regardless of whether your accident claim goes to trial, the best motor vehicle attorney for Albuquerque accident victims should be capable of finding the best experts. Most people are familiar with the term “expert witnesses”, who are experts that provide credible and detailed testimony at trial when needed.
However, experts can also be used outside of the trial context. Here are a few ways that an expert can help your accident claim, including by serving as an expert witness.
Experts Make Great Case Evaluators
Your Albuquerque motor vehicle attorney may also rely on experts to evaluate the legal merits of a claim and the extent of legal damages that you suffered as a victim. Relying on an expert’s insight into these matters can be used to negotiate a fair settlement offer that may not have been achievable without their assistance.
Experts can also help explore complex fact patterns at an accident scene, such as determining legal fault when, at first glance, multiple parties appear to share legal responsibility. Experts can be critical for determining whether brakes were faulty or whether roads were poorly maintained, for example.
These types of findings are useful long before an expert witness is needed at trial. Providing this evidence during settlement negotiations can lead to a fair settlement offer that makes the uncertainty of a trial unnecessary altogether.

As a lifelong New Mexico resident with years of experience successfully representing injured New Mexico accident victims, I always strive to be the best attorney possible for my clients. Operating as a solo attorney enables me to provide committed, a personalized legal representation that leads to positive legal outcomes for my clients.
I always strive to be the best motor vehicle attorney possible for all my clients, and part of this goal means I cannot always do it alone. Sometimes, I may need to rely on an expert’s insights to develop a case and provide the evidence that your case will need.
For example, I may rely on experts to best develop your car accident claim if:
- An expert can reconstruct a complex accident scene to best explain what happened
- Injuries are extensive, making medical expertise necessary to properly determine the compensation you deserve to receive
- Written statements of reported findings can be used to assist in settlement negotiation
Experts Are Often an Essential Ally for Your Claim at Trial
When a case is not settled, a trial will be needed to get you the compensation that is deserved after a New Mexico accident. At trial, I will work to build the strongest possible legal argument, which will typically involve an expert witness.
An expert’s testimony at trial is often a critical component of persuading a jury based on the evidence. This is especially true when “demonstrative evidence” is needed. Depending on the complexity of the car accident and the accident scene itself, effective maps, models and similar visual information can be instrumental in helping the jury properly understand the strength of your legal claim.
