How Accident Reconstruction Works
If you suffered injuries in a Bossier Parish or Caddo Parish accident, we can call in accident reconstruction experts to help prove your case. Accident reconstruction is a method of determining the circumstances that led to an accident.
Here, specially trained reconstructionists will work backward from what we already know about your case to what we still need to prove, including:
- The location of each vehicle after the accident (to prove the angle of the collision)
- The damage to each car
- Witness statements
- Weather conditions
- The injuries to each party
This will allow them to paint a more accurate picture of the factors that contributed to the accident. For example, they may be able to discover and document:
- Where the cars first collided
- The speed of the vehicles at the time of the accident
- If any other drivers may have played a role in causing the accident
- If there was a problem with either vehicle that contributed to the accident
- If there were drugs or alcohol involved
- If the other driver fell asleep or was distracted
Proving Your Innocence
Our team can use the accident reconstruction experts’ opinions to prove negligence and liability, as well as to handle allegations of comparative fault. This may be especially important in a case when the at-fault driver accuses you of contributing to the accident. This type of accusation could greatly affect the recoverable damages in your case, per Louisiana Civil Code (CC) §2323.

How We Recover Damages for Our Clients
Your damages depend on the losses and injuries you experienced as a result of the collision. We calculate the approximate value of your damages then seek appropriate compensation. This way, we know the exact amount of a fair settlement in your case so we don’t end up settling for less than you need to cover your expenses.
Financial compensation can include the following types of damages:
- Current and future medical costs
- Current and future lost income and related benefits
- Diminished earning capacity if you cannot go back to your job
- Property damages to your car
- Out-of-pocket expenses
- Pain and suffering
- Reduced quality of life related to permanent injuries
Time Limits on Filing a Civil Action in a Shreveport Traffic Accident
There is a one-year time limit on filing a lawsuit in most traffic accident cases under CC §3492. If we are unable to reach an out-of-court settlement with the insurance company and need to file a lawsuit in your case, we must file the paperwork before that one-year deadline. Your paperwork will name the liable party as the defendant and will request compensation from them to cover your losses.
