Traffic Crash Reconstruction

TRTC employs a team of experienced experts utilizing specialized equipment to gather evidence from the accident site and vehicles, witness statements, and perform photo/video analysis to provide you with answers as to how the accident occurred. We use scientific, engineering, and mathematical technology and techniques to investigate the accident and recreate it with computer animations and simulations using Virtual Crash 4. We can also provide video and photographs of the accident site. This photographic documentation also allows us to precisely re-create the crash scene in a virtual environment using a technique called “Photogrammetry”. In addition, we have the capability to download vehicles (passenger and commercial motor vehicles), providing you with detailed, critical evidence pertaining to your crash.

It always seems a bit strange to hear it said this way, but the fact of the matter is, a crash reconstructionist starts from the end of the crash and works their way back to the beginning. Many times the end of a crash is staring us in the face but the catalyst for the crash is invisible until we are able to collect the puzzle pieces and begin to rebuild the incident.

At Traffic Reconstruction and Transportation Compliance, we are able to assist you with any particular portion of your case, or thoroughly work an entire crash reconstruction using State of the Art tools that allow us to reach sound conclusions on your crash in minimal time.

We rebuild the incident by:

  • Talking to occupants that were involved in the crash
  • Talking to investigators and emergency personnel who were at the scene
  • Talking with participating medical personnel
  • Talking with witnesses
  • Collecting physical evidence at the scene
  • Downloading/imaging & analyzing vehicle “Black Box” (Electronic Data Recorder) data
  • Documenting crush damage to the vehicle exteriors
  • Documenting evidence inside of the vehicles
  • Working up a speed analysis by using sound reconstruction principles such as Conservation of Momentum, Conservation of Energy, Event Data Recorder analysis, and more
  • Performing time and distance speed evaluations
  • Completing visibility & speed studies
  • Completing thorough inspections of vehicle records, company records where it applies, occupant personal driving records, driver’s applicable training records
  • Drawing “to scale” crash scene diagrams and life-like maps that specifically show scene evidence
  • And much much more
