We offer state of the art vehicular accident reconstruction, testing, safety research and expert testimony.
Consulting activities involve collision analysis, vehicle dynamics and handling, rollover analysis, computer simulation/modeling, testing design, heavy truck dynamics, crashworthiness, laser scanning and EDR analysis.
Vehicles analyzed include passenger cars, SUVs, heavy trucks, motorcycles, ATVs, forklifts, industrial trucks and bicycles. Collectively we have participated in over 5,000 collision analyses and component performance tests. We have generated ground-breaking research studies, analysis reports, technical papers, continuing education lectures and training materials.
