Los Angeles DUI and Accident Reconstruction Experts

California DUI and Accident Reconstruction Experts

When a Los Angeles DUI involves an accident, there are often severe consequences for the driver. This is especially true when the accident results in injury or even death of another person. Because of this, it is often necessary to employ the services of a California accident reconstruction specialist when fighting DUI charges under California Vehicle Code Section 23152 or California Vehicle Code Section 23153 as well as manslaughter charges under California Penal Code Section 192.

It is important to have a California accident reconstruction expert analyze the scene of the accident and/or vehicles involved as soon as possible to avoid losing crucial evidence. Law enforcement agencies will use their own experts to examine accident scenes and the evidence they gather will be used to prosecute a person to the fullest extent of the law. It is just as important for a defense attorney to utilize defense experts.

A California accident reconstruction specialist looks to establish what the events were leading up the collision. If he or she can establish that the collision was unavoidable or caused by an issue unrelated to alcohol or impaired driving, then the prosecutor may be unable to prove a crucial element of their case. These experts will often look to the vehicles themselves to determine if there were any mechanical flaws or safety recalls that may have contributed to the collision.

They will additionally look into areas such as weather conditions, road conditions, traffic and lighting of the particular area. Skid mark analysis may be helpful, as the presence of skid marks can held determine speed of the vehicle and what braking actions, if any, the driver attempted to use to avoid the collision.

Michael Kraut is outstanding! He genuinely cared about my case and instructed my mom and I throughout the entire process. He was very clear on what he needed in order to receive the best results. He kept us updated until the end. I thank him so much for getting my charges rejected. I highly recommend him to anyone with legal needs! Shaquan
I contacted Michael with concern for my personal and business reputation. He was very reassuring and confident the entire time. After about 3 weeks it was determined that no charges were being filed by any agency and I was in the clear of any investigation. One thing that is amazing is just how FAST Michael is at replying to phone calls, texts, and even emails! We are talking under 30 minutes in most cases. That is unheard of for most attorneys! Michael is incredible and not your typical run of the mill attorney. For best results hire him if you feel like you might be under investigation or could face charges. Even if you know you are innocent it is best to take care of the smoke before it becomes a fire. Brad
Michael Kraut is-hands down-the best criminal defense attorney and I can't begin to thank him for all that he did for me and my family. I reached out to him in the middle of the night and less than a couple hours later, he had gotten back to me and scheduled a meeting. He's a no-nonsense attorney who knows how to get the job done! From the second we retained him, I had peace of mind in knowing that we were in the best hands possible. If Michael Kraut couldn't get it done, I knew that it couldn't be done at all. You can't put a price tag on your freedom. He was worth every single penny. Lida
Michael Kraut is an outstanding attorney. He was extremely professional, and straightforward, yet sensitive with my case. I am confident I made the right choice by hiring Michael. I highly recommend him to anyone seeking a truly experienced lawyer. Daniel
Michael Kraut - I cannot thank you enough for all that you did for ​my son. When I came to you I read that you used to be a district attorney but I never knew how much that meant until I watch you in court. I knew it took 3 months but the final day when I heard the judge say that all charges were dismissed it was all worth it! I will always be grateful for all that you did for us. A.N.
