Not only do we know how to reconstruct crashes, we also know how to determine causation.
Our vehicle crash group consists of reconstruction experts, vehicle and highway engineers supported by specialists in areas that impact vehicle-related incidents such as conspicuity, lighting, heavy vehicle operators, fleet operators, meteorology, biomechanical, human factors, and dram shop. We have experts who specialize in trucks, buses, motorcycles, trains, pedestrian and bicycle crashes, as well as in all types of passenger vehicles.
We work hard to find hard answers.
From complex crash reconstruction to developing demonstrative evidence for court testimony, our experts have in-depth knowledge of how vehicles work, regulations affecting truck operations, highway design, operation and maintenance, as well as specialized skills in driver behavior, road conditions and construction work zones.
- Inattentive Driving – Expert Investigates Pedestrian Strike in Crosswalk
A woman and her daughter were caught in the crosswalk of a busy intersection when the traffic light changed. The Defendant accelerated from the opposite side of the intersection and impacted the Plaintiff and her daughter. Robson Forensic was retained to determine if the Defendant’s driving was improper in a manner that caused the collision. Crash Reconstruction Expert, Steven J. Becker, reconstructed the collision to determine the speed of the Defendant’s truck and demonstrated how the Defendant was driving inattentively and caused the collision.

- Pedestrian Strike - Experts Investigate Fatal Pedestrian-Vehicle Collision
A pedestrian was struck and killed by a vehicle while attempting to cross midblock on a four-lane, urban roadway. The incident occurred at night as the victim was attempting to visit a nightclub on the southbound side of the roadway.

Evidence of marijuana was found in the SUV. The driver of the SUV faced charges of vehicular homicide and vehicular homicide while under the influence. Robson Forensic vehicle engineering expert, Tom Lacek, P.E., was retained to reconstruct the crash to determine the driver’s impact speed and the victim’s pre-impact location when the driver began to react to the impending collision.

- Fatal, Hit-Pedestrian, Night Time Collision
This is a fatal, hit-pedestrian, night time collision. The pedestrian walked in front of a SUV that pulled into the middle lane to make a left turn and then out in front of a car passing the turning SUV. We reconstructed the events of the collision and determined that the pedestrian walked out in front of the driver within the driver’s reasonable perception reaction time. The driver did not have enough time or distance to avoid collision. The cause of this collision was the pedestrian walking out in front of the driver. The driver’s actions were not improper in a manner that was a cause of the crash. The case settled at mediation.
