The severity, nature and extent of road traffic incidents are very diverse. Road traffic accidents/ collisions can be the culmination of a number of different events involving a combination of factors either causatory or contributory.
Our Accident Investigator will analyse the available evidence as a whole, both physical & witness, and prepare reconstruction reports, comment on contributory negligence and in doing so can address factors including Vehicle speed, condition of vehicles, the road layout, lines of sight, visibility issues, driver reactions, pedestrian movement, pedestrian conspicuity, carry out reconstructions at the collision scene at any time of day relevant to the circumstances, weather conditions, component failure and tyre failures and assess CCTV footage. We can also research the accident statistics for a particular section of road to see whether there is any evidence to show it is an accident blackspot and then assess any reasons as to why this should be so.
In civil cases we often find that due to our knowledge and experiences we can advise instructing parties that there is potentially a vast amount of additional evidence that could be available from the Police or insurance assessors / companies that they may not be aware of and we can provide a list of what to ask for and where to ask. This can often assist a case greatly.
