Deciphering the Scene: Our Vehicle Accident Reconstruction Capabilities

The Rimkus Transportation team specializes in providing thorough vehicle accident reconstruction services for clients seeking to understand how and why complex accidents occurred. Through meticulous investigation and analysis, we can help uncover crucial evidence and determine causation.

Our engineers and technical specialists utilize advanced techniques to reconstruct accidents accurately. This involves examining physical evidence such as skid marks, vehicle damage, road conditions, and eyewitness testimonies to recreate the sequence of events leading to the accident. We also assess the performance of vehicles involved in accidents, analyzing factors such as speed, braking, steering, and mechanical failures, to determine if any defects or malfunctions contributed to the accident.

Utilizing state-of-the-art tools and technology, we can extract and interpret data from event data recorders (EDRs) installed in vehicles, which can provide critical information about the vehicle’s pre-crash dynamics, including speed, braking, acceleration, and seatbelt usage.

Comprehensive Support

Rimkus experts offer a multidisciplinary approach that combines engineering expertise and scientific principles to offer a comprehensive analysis. Understanding human behavior and reactions is crucial in accident reconstruction. When necessary, our Human Factors consultants can examine driver actions, perception-reaction times, distraction levels, and impairment factors (such as alcohol or drugs) to assess their contribution to the accident.

We also offer significant transportation expertise and can evaluate factors like road design, signage, lighting, traffic signals, and temporary traffic control to determine if unsafe conditions may have influenced the accident. As needed, our consultants can provide expert testimony in legal proceedings, presenting our findings and opinions based on scientific analysis.
