Accident Reconstruction

Scientific Analysis of Factors Surrounding a Crash or Other Accident Event

Accident Reconstruction is the forensic science of determining how an accident occurred while assisting in the determination of the cause or why an accident or particular event during an accident happened using all available physical evidence.  This evidence can be in the form of tire marks, gouges, vehicle parts, vehicle damage, surveillance video, electronic vehicle information, occupant and pedestrian injuries, witness testimony, etc.  A collision reconstructionist takes all of the available evidence, like pieces in a puzzle, utilizes available tools and research, to put together the larger picture of the overall accident event.
