The municipal and highway engineers at Robson Forensic are frequently retained to determine if the design, construction, or maintenance operations of roadway systems contributed to the cause of motor vehicle collisions, pedestrian strikes, or other injuries.

Design, Construction, and Maintenance of Roadways

The highway experts at Robson Forensic examine crash sites, use field measurements, scrutinize crash scene photos, and perform accident reconstructions to determine if highway factors or road conditions contributed to the cause of motor vehicle crashes.
