Forensic Services:
Liability Investigations

How fast was the driver going? Was the passenger wearing a seat belt? Was the collision avoidable? Was weather or road design a contributing factor?

These are just some of the questions that our forensic engineers and scientists can help answer. We analyze the physical evidence and available information using the latest technology and relevant research (including our very own). Our unique peer-review process results in the most science-backed expert opinion.

The following is a list of common services we offer to help get answers for your liability investigations:

✔  Driver behaviour and response: visibility, hazard detection, perception and response times

✔  Collision avoidability

 Speed determination

✔  Usage of safety equipment (i.e. seat belts)

✔  Safety equipment failures (i.e. seat belts and seats)

✔  Surveying of roadway design, geometry, and roadside safety

✔  Roadway and winter maintenance

✔  Environmental factors: contributing factors of weather

✔  Determination of sun position

✔  Traffic signal state (including the “dilemma zone”)

✔  Oncoming vehicle “gap acceptance”

✔  Surface slipperiness (slip testing)

✔  Product failure (i.e. linked to material and/or design)

✔  Compliance with Building Code and other standards

✔  Vehicle dynamic testing

✔  Component and equipment testing

✔  Case-specific research or other testing
