Here at Bodily's Traffic Collision Consulting and Reconstruction, LLC 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. An example of this would be to show that one party was speeding and did not attempt to brake prior to a collision with another party who was turning left. The party turning left is at fault but the party speeding may have had some fault in the collision.

When looking to have a traffic collision reconstructed there are many options. The biggest decision is to use an engineer or a member of law enforcement. One thing to remember is an engineer does not have the field experience at traffic collision scenes when the vehicles are still there. They have only worked on the cases which they have been hired for and do not always understand the proper application of the law. Remember, the cause of a collision does not change just because a Traffic Reconstructionist is involved but the amount of fault on one party or the other may.
