Accident Reconstructionist

Auto Accident Investigation

auto accident resoncstruction expertAfter an accident, there are many questions that demand answers. Bison’s accident reconstruction experts can make clear any such questions our clients may have pertaining to liability claims.

Such as:

  • Speeds at Impact
  • Impact location
  • Damage consistency
  • Distance & Time Analysis
  • Crush Damage Determination
  • Black Box Downloads
  • Reaction Distances

Insurance companies and attorneys must have accurate accident investigations and accident reconstructions to determine liability. Even a correct police report containing weather and road conditions or traffic light malfunctions does not include all the variable physical evidence at an accident scene.

A police report may not accurately assess or reflect critical elements of information such as: speed, skid marks, momentum, points of impact, crush damage, gouges, reaction distances, line-of-sight, and driver actions.

There may be other circumstantial factors involved for example: mechanical or electronic system failures that will need to be investigated for analysis of ABS brakes, airbags, alleged brake and steering failures, tire failures, and light bulb analyses to determine if headlights, brake lights, hazard, or turn signal lights were operative.

Accident reconstructionists trained in the proper methodology for data gathering, forensic mapping and measuring, animation, and photography are essential to a thorough accident investigation, analysis, reconstruction, and successful resolution of any liability claim.

Once the initial accident investigation is complete, Bison’s accident reconstruction experts analyze the accident scene data to accurately reconstruct vehicle accidents to determine how they occurred.  Using powerful state-of- the-art accident reconstruction software, Bison’s experts can quickly recreate the accident three-dimensionally to demonstrate how the accident was believed to have occurred, while also providing proper calculations to support such hypotheses. Utilizing the physical data collected from the accident scene, momentum & energy formulas solve the trajectories, speeds, time, distances, etc. of each vehicle involved in the accident to complete the reconstruction.

Human Error . . . or Something More?
