Can I Have an Expert Testify for how my Bicycle Accident Occurred?

Can I Have An Expert Testify For How My Bicycle Accident Occurred? Yes, in certain circumstances, you will be able to use expert testimony to advance the theories of your bicycle accident lawsuit.

How can I use an Expert Witness in my Bike Accident Case?

An expert witness is someone who has knowledge of a material factual matter beyond that of an average person because of education, training, or experience. 107 Ill. 2d R. 220(a)(1). Illinois courts have accepted engineers, bicycle designers, and even former bicycle racers to testify as bicycle experts. Schaffner v. Chicago & North Western Transp. Co., 161 Ill. App. 3d 742, 750 (Ill. App. Ct. 1st Dist. 1987). These experts may testify to the bicycle's safety features, or other design aspects that may or may not have contributed to the accident.

Regardless of my Experts, What Do I Have To Do To Win My Bike Accident Case?

You clearly articulate how you were injured, how the defendant was at fault and why you are entitled to relief. Expert testimony fits within a trial strategy geared towards incorporating all available resources. In discovery, you obtain information and evidence. Finally, at trial, you explain your case to the jury and reply to defendant rebuttals.

Client Reviews
★★★★★
Jonathan Rosenfeld was professionally objective, timely, and knowledgeable. Also, his advice was extremely effective regarding my case. In addition, Jonathan was understanding and patient pertaining to any of my questions or concerns. I was very happy with the end result and I highly recommend Jonathan Rosenfeld. Michonne Proulx
★★★★★
Extremely impressed with this law firm. They took control of a bad motorcycle crash that left my uncle seriously injured. Without any guarantee of a financial recovery, they went out and hired accident investigators and engineers to help prove how the accident happened. I am grateful that they worked on a contingency fee basis as there was no way we could have paid for these services on our own. Ethan Armstrong
★★★★★
This lawyer really helped me get compensation for my motorcycle accident case. I know there is no way that I could have gotten anywhere near the amount that Mr. Rosenfeld was able to get to settle my case. Thank you. Daniel Kaim

Jonathan did a great job helping my family navigate through a lengthy lawsuit involving my grandmother's death in a nursing home. Through every step of the case, Jonathan kept my family informed of the progression of the case. Although our case eventually settled at a mediation, I really was impressed at how well prepared Jonathan was to take the case to trial. Lisa
