Accident Reconstruction

Accident reconstruction is the scientific analysis of the kinematics and kinetics of pedestrians, vehicles, and occupants involved in an accident sequence. The reconstruction of an accident is the synthesis of: physical inspections of the scene and vehicles; photogrammetry and other photo analysis; obtaining and analyzing event data recorder (“black box”) data from the vehicles; review and analysis of available video of the accident; analysis of vehicle crush; momentum analysis; vehicle component failure analysis; signal light timing analysis; visibility and sight distances; bulb and filament analysis; analysis of restraint use or misuse; and occupant kinematics.

The accident reconstruction engineers at InSciTech have experience with all manner of accidents, including:

  • Motor vehicle accident reconstruction
  • Heavy truck and bus accident reconstruction
  • Pedestrian, bicycle, and motorcycle accident reconstruction
  • Industrial accident reconstruction
  • Workplace accident reconstruction
  • Product failure analysis

InSciTech uses the latest technology in accident reconstruction. Examples of our equipment and capabilities include:

  • 3D scene and vehicle mapping using Total Station technology
  • PC Crash accident simulation
  • Photogrammetry
  • Video and audio analysis
  • 3D solid modeling
  • Event Data Recorder (“black box”) imaging for passenger vehicles
  • Engine Control Module ("black box") imaging of heavy trucks
  • Low-speed crash test
