Our licensed mechanical engineers and accident reconstruction experts calculate forces, collision trajectory, and evaluate other contributing factors connected with a motor vehicle accident. Accident reconstruction experts are often asked the questions “how did it happen” and “why did it happen” when there is a liability dispute. Accident reconstruction experts may be asked to collaborate with biomechanical engineering experts, who evaluate whether an injury reported by a driver or occupant of a vehicle is consistent with the facts of the case.
Our experts are trained to download and analyze “Black Box Data” from the airbag control module (ACM) of passenger vehicles and engine control module (ECM) of commercial vehicles. This data may include information such as speed, braking, acceleration and other main factors associated with the case, depending on the vehicle’s make and model. This data may be an essential form of physical evidence that our experts consider in the reconstruction of accidents. Crash data may be volatile so it is important to preserve the involved vehicle for proper documentation and data extraction. Collision Reconstruction Consulting is capable of responding to scenes and vehicles within hours of notification to ensure the data is preserved for your case.
