Following a collision, minutes matter. With every bit of time that passes, tire marks fade, videos are recorded over, electronic crash data is overwritten, and vehicles are repaired or disposed of. Collision Analytics maintains readiness to document and preserve physical and electronic evidence throughout the midwestern United States.
But where do you start? At Collision Analytics, we strive to inform our clients of all sources of data following a collision. Whether the information comes from a heavy vehicle engine system, public 911 call records, or a pedestrian’s clothing, our services aim to not only document and analyze, but to guide our clients in turning over every stone.
Just because you are working with an expert, does not mean you should not remain informed. Prior to work beginning, our clients have a firm understanding of the need for our work, how the scope of our work fits into their case, and if needed, an approximate cost for our services.
Light Vehicle Collisions
Thousands of collisions occur every day and often times detailed circumstances that led to those collisions go unreported. Responding law enforcement personnel will complete a basic multi-page report before continuing on to their next call for service. Do not base your case on face-value reporting. Whether it's a basic case review you need or a full crash reconstruction and forensic animation, at Collision Analytics, we have the equipment and expertise to dig into the root causes of your case.
As much as is possible, we fully document the scene of the accident through ground-level photography, aerial drone imagery, forensic measurement, and video. We fully examine, document, and measure the involved vehicles, preserving their evidence for future admissibility.
Passenger vehicles contain a tremendous amount of data that is critical for determining the actual circumstances of a collision. It is surprising how many vehicles are towed away and quickly scrapped or crushed, destroying important evidence in the process. See our Resources page for information about what data is available by make and model year.
Collision Analytics also specializes in the evaluation of historical evidence. Combining modern-day scene measurements with dated collision scene photographs and historical satellite imagery, often the scene of the collision can be recreated.
Contact us today to discuss how our investigative methods can benefit your case.
Heavy Vehicle Collisions
Time is of the essence in heavy vehicle collision analysis. The best-case scenario is that we are able to arrive on the scene before the vehicles are removed, and the pavement is swept clean. More often we're permitted to respond to the collision scene or our client's involved vehicle within 24 to 48 hours of the occurrence. As time passes, tire marks fade, surveillance video is recorded over, vehicles are repaired, and electronic collision data is overwritten. Our timely response allows the documentation of evidence critical to understanding your case.
Documenting and analyzing heavy vehicle collisions requires a trained eye that comes with experience. Drawing from over a decade's experience with heavy vehicles, Collision Analytics has the equipment, expertise, and readiness to address your heavy vehicle collision.
Heavy vehicles are fully inspected, documented, and measured to preserve their condition. We will fully examine all aspects of the heavy vehicle, including braking and lighting systems, loading and securement, safety systems, and telematics and event data recorders.
Even more than light passenger vehicles, heavy commercial vehicles record an astounding amount of operation data, which is critical for determining the actual scenario of an accident. See our Resources page for information about what data is available by make and model year.
If your company or client's heavy vehicle was involved in a collision, contact us today to ensure evidence critical to your case is preserved.
Forensic Documentation & Testimony
Our rapid-response team can quickly get to a crash scene throughout the Midwest. When we arrive at the scene of a collision, we immediately get to work preserving critical pieces of data and information. General photos and notes from the first responders on site can give an overall impression of the crash result. But it’s the tiny details and observations in our court-admissible reports and simulations that set us apart. Our extensive background in documentation, data preservation, and recreation allows the trier of fact to understand what actually transpired that lead to the collision. Our documentation and analysis are always completed at a level that helps ensure admissibility at trial and minimizes scrutiny by opposing experts and counsel.
Collision Event Data
Our team has the equipment and expertise necessary to extract and preserve the recorded data from motorcycles, light vehicles, and heavy vehicles. See our Resources page for information about what data is available by make and model year. Most modern vehicles collect and store a wide range of operational and safety system data. It is very important to access the vehicles involved as soon as possible, so we can collect and preserve the recorded information. Contact us today to ensure your collision data is preserved and available for further analysis.
Presentation and Training
We can provide background information and training to Bar Associations, individual Law Firms seeking an advantage in accident cases, Construction or Logistics Companies, and other groups who would benefit from understanding how collision data preservation and analysis can be beneficial. We have delivered customized sessions to groups across the country and are available for either in-person or virtual sessions. Reach out to us today to set up a session for your group.
