What is crash reconstruction?

When California drivers get into accidents, it can be difficult to determine who is at fault. Fortunately, there are tools that law enforcement and other professionals can use to get the most accurate idea of what happened during the crash.

Vehicular accident reconstruction, or traffic collision reconstruction, is one of these tools. According to the National District Attorneys Association, crash reconstruction is vital to putting together what happened during an accident, especially if there were no witnesses to help corroborate stories. Things that crash reconstruction can reveal may include:

  • Where the crash occurred
  • How it happened
  • Why it happened
  • Who was at fault

Both engineering principles and the laws of science are used to determine things like the trajectory of vehicles, the angles of the impacts, and how the people involved interacted with the vehicles and the surrounding area.

Careful inspection of the scene of the accident is also of vital importance to reconstructing it. Things like skid marks on the road or the debris field are carefully surveyed by professionals. Based on that, they can determine things like the rough speed that vehicles were traveling at, the direction they were coming from, and even what may have happened to cause the crash.

Crash reconstruction can be exactly what's needed for you to prove what you believe happened, or for you to learn what may have happened if you don't have any idea, yourself. It's also a valuable tool when it comes to pursuing compensation in court, and can be a huge asset to you.
