Accident Reconstruction

Accident Reconstruction

Motor vehicle accidents are the most common type of incidents producing injury in the US. Automotive accident litigation often involves determination of vehicle speeds from damage or skid marks, considering the effects of seatbelt usage, airbag deployment, vehicle component failure (e.g. steering, braking), roadway design, occupant injury biomechanics, rollovers, and driver visibility.  Our expert engineers are experienced in a great variety of accident types including single car crashes, multiple car crashes, front impacts, side impacts, highway or arterial road accidents, tree and guardrail impacts and others.

Our accident reconstruction experts are familiar with techniques such as computer simulations and 3D animations. These tools aid an expert witness in constructing persuasive testimony for a judge and jury.  Our engineering expert witnesses have extensive experience in both accident reconstruction and courtroom testimony regarding these cases, and have served hundreds of attorneys for both Plaintiffs and Defendants.

Our engineers have been assisting attorneys and insurance representatives in investigating accidents since 1990. We have a highly qualified staff of engineers with advanced degrees from top-tier universities who have provided testimony on behalf of both plaintiffs and defendants at trial

Previous Cases

Two Vehicle Collision

As a sedan was making a left turn into a driveway from a two-lane road, it was broad sided by an oncoming van, injuring the car’s driver. We performed a complete accident reconstruction and found that the initial speed of the van was at least 10 mph over the posted speed limit. At trial, our expert successfully demonstrated to a jury that although the Honda had turned in front of the van, it was the van’s excessive speed that caused the accident.

Speed Over-estimation by Police

A young man was driving his vehicle on a town road when he lost control and crashed into a tree on the opposite side of the road, killing his passenger. Our investigation found errors in the police sketches and calculations. The police had included an extra 100 ft of skid marks, which could not have been produced by this ABS-equipped vehicle. Thus, our accident reconstruction showed that he was only traveling 35 mph (rather than 65 mph) and that he lost control of the vehicle due to a medical condition.
