Cross Examination of the Accident Reconstruction Expert

In a hotly contested liability case, success or failure can come down to the strength of the defense accident reconstruction expert. These experts can be skilled, polished, and believable – and if not controlled, your biggest problem in the case.

In this interactive session, you will learn how to take on the accident reconstruction expert with effective techniques that will expose their bias and undermine their credibility. Using a real-life case file, you will practice cross-examining a seasoned defense reconstruction expert in a supportive educational environment, where constructive feedback will be provided. You will learn from your own experiences, as well as from watching others perform the same tasks. Some of the techniques you will learn include:

  • The effective use of chapters
  • Spontaneous loops
  • Using deposition video clips
  • Negative space
  • Demeanor and physicality
  • Using roadmaps

Prior to the event, participants will be required to attend a zoom meeting, where the case file will be shared, and relationships will be formed. The goal of the program is to give you a roadmap for success in taking on one of the most challenging parts of a trial.
