Methods of Investigating a Car Accident | What is Accident Reconstruction?

Accident reconstruction determines the way an accident occurred, which individuals were involved, who was at fault, and how the accident could have been prevented. For an attorney to understand the critical components of an accident case, they must be well-equipped with the details of the accident. Our trusted team of accident reconstruction experts has the ability to recreate an accident. Contact Advanced Investigations today to learn more about our services and how we can help.

What is accident reconstruction?

The reconstruction of accidents is attempted in many ways by different people throughout an accident case by parties explaining in their own words what happened, witnesses attempting to tell what they saw or hard, police writing up a report about the scene of the accident, the violations, and other factors such as alcohol use or speeding, and attorneys taking all of this information into consideration to compile a clear picture of what happened.

However, within each of these actions, there is one thing missing: an unbiased composite of all the factors, accounts, reports, and mechanics of the accident. It is easy for contradictions to occur when parties tell their own sides of the story. Plus, attorneys will almost always look at the information that is biased toward their clients. The difficulty with witnesses is that they can only attest to the fraction of what they witnessed. Police do not witness the accident and can include their own biases in the reports they create.

The only individuals who can take everything that is known and unknown about an accident to make a compilation that is required for an accident case are private investigators. Private investigators can also be used to discover missing information and search for the truth of the situation.

To reconstruct an accident, private investigators will utilize several aspects including the following:

  • Interviews with witnesses
  • Locating photos and videos and any other clues of the accident
  • Inspection of the accident scene
  • Vehicle and machine inspections
  • Computer software programs for visual reconstruction and analysis

Other ways private investigations can be utilized are to hold the liable party accountable, prevent future accidents, bring closure to the parties, find evidence that will hold up in court, prove fault in an accident, and get answers.
