My firm retained Mr. Thomas as an expert accident reconstruction expert in a difficult “phantom” hit and run case in which the insurance company steadfastly refused to cover the incident prior to us filing suit. Mr. Thomas’s report was as thorough and comprehensive as possible given the facts of the case. Mr. Thomas outworked the insurance company’s reconstruction expert by a mile, who is a P.E. with a large forensic engineering firm in the area. Mr. Thomas was a fantastic witness at the deposition and did not back down against a very experienced and aggressive opposing counsel.
Most reconstruction experts do not have years of experience in the courtroom as a law enforcement officer, and they would not have handled this deposition with the strength and grace Mr. Thomas demonstrated. The insurance company initiated settlement discussions soon after Mr. Thomas’s deposition, and through negotiation, we were able to reach a favorable result for our client.
I do not think this would have been possible without Mr. Thomas’s dedicated work on the case. Finally, Mr. Thomas is friendly, professional, and always available to help his clients in any way that he can. I endorse Mr. Thomas without reservation.
