What is an Accident Investigation in Connecticut?

Accident investigation and reconstruction determine how an accident occurred, who is at fault and how to prevent future accidents. Each day in the United States, people and machines react unexpectedly, causing thousands of accidents. For accidents that result in significant injury or death, victims want more substantiative answers than “something went wrong.” For more information on the nature of an accident investigation, please read on, then contact one of our skilled Connecticut accident reconstruction experts.

What is the point of an accident investigation in Connecticut?

After an accident, police or independent investigators will conduct an investigation, which usually includes a reconstruction of the incident. The latter, usually hired by insurance companies or attorneys, will analyze the cause of the accident to make a determination of fault and look for criminal activity including:

  • Speeding
  • Mechanical violations
  • Alcohol involvement

How does a private investigator arrive at a determination of fault?

To make a determination as to fault, an investigator will perform the following steps:

  • Inspection of the accident site, which includes interviews with witnesses, photographs of the scene and documentation of other evidence, i.e. point of impact, final positions, skid marks, etc.
  • Conducting vehicle inspections and noting the amount of damage or potential mechanical issues
  • Reconstructing the accident by either:
    • Applying the physics and information at the scene, or
    • Using computer software programs

When do you need an accident investigation conducted by a Connecticut private investigator?

Ultimately, that will depend on the needs and wants of the person retaining the private investigator’s services. Nonetheless, some reasons to hire a skilled Connecticut private investigator for lawyers include:

  • To determine what caused an accident and prevent accidents in the future: If an accident has occurred on your company’s premises or on your private property, an accident investigation can help you prevent similar incidents in the future.
  • To reduce liability in an accident: If you do not know what actually happened in an accident, you may find yourself liable for damages and injuries. A good accident investigator can save you long court hassles and thousands of dollars by proving you were not at fault.
  • To get answers: Sometimes, just knowing what really happened brings you a sense of closure. Accident reconstruction can tell you what happened in a specific situation.
  • To obtain evidence that can stand up in courts: Only a qualified accident investigator can obtain the evidence you need to solidify your court case if you are trying to collect damages for an accident or need to prove that you did not cause said accident through negligence or other faults.
