ACCIDENT RECONSTRUCTION

Once the accident scene and vehicles have been properly documented by our engineers, the police, or another entity we specialize in accurately reconstructing these vehicle accidents to determine how they occurred. We evaluate accidents from two main viewpoints — the dynamics of each vehicle and the response of the human body inside the vehicle to the forces generated by the collision sequence. This allows us to evaluate such issues as impact speed, driver avoidance possibilities, seat belt use, and how or if an injury could have occurred from a particular accident.

Bloomberg Consulting employs engineers and biomechanics specialists who use their background, training, and experience to analyze the complex engineering and injury causation issues involved in motor vehicle accident cases. We pride ourselves in our ability to accurately put the complex pieces of an accident investigation puzzle back together in order to present a clear picture of how the accident occurred.

Bloomberg Consulting is an advocate of using the latest state-of-the-art accident reconstruction equipment and computer software whenever necessary. We use 3-D laser scanners, robotic surveying equipment, digital cameras and video recorders to accurately preserve the layout of the roadway and all of the pertinent evidence such as skid marks, gouge marks and fluid stains. Our engineers are certified in the use "black box" data retrieval equipment to download and analyze critical data from tractor-trailers and passenger vehicles. They are also experienced and certified in the inspection of heavy truck brakes and the downloading of their ABS systems.

Once the scene and vehicles have been documented, we utilize 3-dimensional physics based simulation software to answer questions relating to vehicle dynamics and injury causation and 3-D animation software to visualize the accident sequence, the driver's perspective and to evaluate accident avoidance possibilities.
