Our team of investigators and analysts include members from the reconstruction community with a proven track record of conducting complex investigations and providing expert testimony in court relating to serious and fatal injury collisions.
Our services include:
- Event Data Recorder (EDR) retrieval and analysis
- Human factors in collision reconstruction
- Commercial vehicle collision reconstruction
- Pedestrian collision reconstruction
- Passenger vehicle and light truck collision reconstruction
- Motorcycle collision reconstruction
- Expert witness testimony
Our team of analysts and investigators conduct documentation of accident scenes which may include measurements and photographs in an effort to represent conditions and factors contributing to the cause of a collision. Vehicle examinations are a critical element in assessing the potential contributing factors and the fitness of the involved vehicles. Our experts strive to take a balanced approach analyzing all of the available information prior to finding a cause. By compiling witness interviews and other collected evidence our team of experts is able to formulate an accurate opinion and cause of the accident as well as contributing factors.
We utilize the Bosch Crash Data Retrieval (CDR) Tool to image collision data directly from all supported vehicles. The image provides our team with a detailed report of critical data parameters leading up to and during a crash. The data may include steering input, vehicle speed, brake status, throttle position, ignition cycles, seatbelt status, among others.
Analysis and Reporting
Vehicular collision reconstruction analysis includes data collection, evaluating possible scenarios, creating models, recreating collisions, testing and utilizing software simulations. Like many other technical activities, collision reconstruction has been revolutionized using on-board held data and specialty software enabling the “imaging” of this knowledge. At the conclusion of an investigation or retrieval of on-board held data, Paladin’s experts compile a comprehensive report detailing the data collected and the analysis of that data.
