Economists and Vocational Experts
If your injury case involves missing work due to the injuries you suffered then you may be entitled to compensation for your lost wages. This may be simple enough if you are salaried or have a consistent schedule. However, it is harder if you have an irregular wage. In that case, an economist may be necessary to determine your actual lost wages and estimated future loss of income.
If your injury has resulted in your no longer being able to work the same job you did before, or has otherwise damaged your future earnings capacity, then a vocational expert may be needed to show why you can no longer perform your former job duties.
Accident Reconstruction Experts
If there is a question of who was at fault in the accident, then a certified accident reconstruction expert may be able to show how the accident happened and determine fault. They have the knowledge, resources, and training to look at an accident from an entirely scientific perspective. They will calculate the speed of the involved vehicles, the momentum and stopping distance of involved vehicles, which direction the vehicles were traveling, and where the vehicles were at the time of impact.
It may be necessary to have a healthcare provider testify about the cause of your injury as well as the extent of it. This is often the case when there is a permanent injury or if you will require ongoing medical procedures in the future. Note that the medical expert may take the place or be used in addition to the doctor who treated your injuries. Your doctor may know about your injuries but may not be a specialist in long-term care for your specific injury.
