In the context of crash reconstruction, biomechanical analyses can allow a more detailed understanding of the forces as they act upon the human body, given the understanding of the overall inter-vehicle forces at play. For example, a common issue is whether or not the forces generated by a vehicle collision are of sufficient magnitude to precipitate an injury to an occupant. A biomechanical analysis will reveal the level of forces as they act upon the body, and more specifically, the injured human body component.
For example, a biomechanical analysis can reveal whether or not a pedestrian might have sustained lesser injuries had the striking vehicle been travelling at a lower velocity. To complete that type of analysis our experts understand the limitations of the human body at a musculoskeletal level, and compare those thresholds to the assessed forces in the actual collision.
In most cases, our local Crashteams experts will assess the crash dynamics and pass that important foundation information to the chosen biomechanical expert. This is a great saving in terms of professional fees, as the biomechanical expert may not have to travel.
Crashteams biomechanical experts can help you to understand how injuries occurred as a result of any physical event, and provide solid testimony to support our findings.
In all of these cases, the goal is to quantify the external forces, and then to understand how these forces can or perhaps cannot, cause the bodily injury. Our biomechanical experts use advanced physics procedures and proven software applications to calculate forces, as well as referencing relavent studies and publications. The specialized knowledge of the mechanical properties of the human musculoskeletal system allows our experts to then predict injury under specific circumstances and report on the likelihood of injury.
Our Crashteams reconstructionists are the most highly trained and qualified individuals in the industry.
All Crashteams experts utilize survey equipment to produce precision crash scene diagrams and 3D models.
All Crashteams reconstructionists are qualified expert witnesses and have given testimony at all court levels and jurisdictions.
Your Crashteams experts can interview witnesses and secure detailed statements as recorded interviews in audio and video formats.
Crashteams experts are all trained and certified as forensic animators. You will find it advantageous that your reconstructionist and animator are the same person.
Crashteams experts are qualified to use many different software applications to simulate the crash for the purposes of answering what-if scenarios and exposing errors in the hypotheses advanced by opposing experts.
You may send us reports from opposing experts and we will be able to tell you immediately if a rebuttal is useful and if so, we produce professional, objective commentaries.
Crashteams have the expertise coverage and manpower to take on all the crash investigation requirements of a community as a public private partnership.
