Collection of Evidence
Investigation involves collecting all available evidence through general surface and aerial photography; surface and aerial videography; and forensic mapping conducted using a variety of technologies, including Total Station, 3-D scanning, and aerial (drone) methods.
The evidence typically collected includes, but is not limited to, scene/roadway geometry and crash related markings, stains, and gouges; vehicular damage extent and available electronic data; and witness statements/testimony, vehicular maintenance, recall and specification records, and pertinent roadway maintenance records.
Analysis of Evidence
Analysis happens throughout an active case.
Frequently, in order to determine the causative factors involved in a collision utilizing accepted principles and methods, analysis will include scientifically processing data/evidence collected, evaluating possible hypotheses through applied physics, creating models, and recreating collisions electronically and through live testing methods.
Visualization and Testimony
After the analysis is completed, our crash reconstructionist typically present opinions in written reports, diagrams, and other forms of admissible courtroom demonstrative aides (animations, simulations, and reenactments).
During mediation, deposition, and trial, each of these methods is helpful to explain the expert conclusions relating to the collision.
