We specialize in complex accident reconstruction using 3D computer simulation.

WHAT IS 3D SIMULATION?

3D simulation offers you the most accurate way to know what really happened before, during, and after a collision.

Traditionally, reconstruction analysis has been performed manually with relatively little sophistication. Rather than a few pages of simple calculations, simulations perform thousands of calculations and account for phenomenon that can not be studied any other way. We can say that the results show what really happened based upon the laws of physics.

Because the analysis is three-dimensional, the results can be viewed from any angle or perspective as a real-time movie. The inherent complexities of a reconstruction suddenly become easy for a jury to see and understand.

IS 3D ADMISSIBLE?

3D computer simulations have been accepted in courts throughout the nation.

They offer the best way to help a jury see and understand the entire sequence of events during the accident.

By providing both 2D diagrams and 3D simulations, we can clearly and concisely communicate our analysis and findings to the jury and make their decisions easier.

TYPICAL AREAS OF ANALYSIS

Through accident reconstruction, we can analyze the key issues of virtually any collision, including seat belts. Some of the most common are given below:

  • Vehicle speed and position before, during and after an accident
  • Passenger Motion & Injuries
  • Visibility
  • Accident Avoidance
  • Loss of Control
  • Rollover
  • Guardrail Collision
  • Tree Impact

CRASH DATA RETRIEVAL

Most truck and passenger car engines contain some form of data recorder (Black Box), in which crash data may be stored. Depending on the manufacturer, we can download to a laptop computer a variety of data such as pre-collision speeds and seat belt use status.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

What if the accident isn't near Tampa Bay?

  • We'll fly there. Using a private aircraft piloted by our staff saves considerable time and money. A survey can be completed in a day or less, almost anywhere in the Southeast.

What Data is Needed?

  • The more information that is available the stronger the simulation can be. To start, we need an idea where the crash occurred and where the vehicles came to rest. The usual elements include crash reports, photographs of the vehicles and crash site, statements and depositions.

    We also need to get involved as soon as practical, especially for collecting crash site information.

Can a multiple vehicle accident be analyzed?

  • Yes. If enough information is available, a 30 car pile-up can be studied.

What Does it Cost?

  • Generally, the more vehicles and the greater the speeds, the more it will cost to simulate. However, a simple intersection collision is relatively inexpensive.

How long does it take?

  • Depends on the case. Multiple vehicles involved in complex movements are more time consuming to analyze, rollovers and human simulations even more so.
