What We Do  -Accident Investigation and Accident Reconstruction

As requested by our clients, we collect all the physical evidence as a result of an accident including:

 Accident scene physical evidence  Police reports  Vehicle damage inspections
 Photographic evidence  Aerial photographs  Roadway features & Signing
 Traffic Signal Timing  Witness Observations  

Detailed effective reports containing all information that has been documented and collected forms the basis for engineering and accident reconstruction opinions.
