We will investigate the damage and the statements to determine if they match. In most cases we are able to determine if the collision was a parked and unoccupied vehicle being collided into or if the vehicle was in motion at the time of the collision.
Using the BOSCH Crash Data Retrieval program we are able to access the Event Data Recorder for most vehicles.
(There are a limited number of vehicles which are not supported by the BOSCH software)
We have the ability to reconstruct a collision to determine the pre-impact speeds. We help to determine the cause of a collision and determine if either of the parties could have taken actions to avoid or minimize the collision.
We are available to do physical inspections of the vehicles involved in the collision as well as the scene of the collision.
We are available for deposition and courtroom testimony for any case we work.
We apply the highest level of ethics and will not give an opinion we are unable to testify to later.
We provide verbal and/or written reports of our investigation. Our reports detail our findings in a way which is easy to understand. The reports will document our review of presented material and an analysis of the information. They will include a conclusion aimed at answering the initial questions of the collision.
When looking to have a traffic collision reconstructed there are many options to consider. One of the biggest is whether to use someone with an engineering background or a law enforcement background. While an engineer has experience working on cases they have been hired for, they do not always understand the application of the laws and the collision scenes in the same way a law enforcement professional would. A law enforcement professional has field experience at traffic collision scenes while the vehicles are still on site and have talked to the drivers along with witnesses immediately following a collision. Both engineers and law enforcement professionals use the same mathematical equations and the same computer programs. The difference comes down to field experience.
