for Legal & Insurance Professionals
We believe that sharing knowledge with our clients is always a win-win: Claims and Legal professionals can get up-to-date with the latest in forensic engineering research and technology, and we can stay current on the ever-changing needs of the industry. That’s why we offer free customized seminars to professionals who seek continuous development.
Seminars led by experts in the field
Our seminars our led by one or more of our very own forensic experts. The content reflects current information in a rapidly changing field of expertise, allowing you to feel confident about the information you receive and offering an opportunity to discuss specific and general topics with our engineering experts that may assist you in your activities.
Flexible locations & seminar customization
We can present seminars at our office or yours, and we can accommodate small, medium, or large groups. We are also able to tailor our seminars to your particular learning needs and can arrange for multiple topics to be covered if enough time is allotted.

Current Seminar topics:
General Crash Reconstruction
Taking the Mystery out of Black Boxes
Forensic Injury Biomechanics in Crashes
The Human Factor: Driver Behaviour, Perception, and Response
The Driverless Frontier
This seminar will explore the revolutionary field of driverless cars from the crash reconstructionist’s perspective. Topics covered will include a brief overview of the safety concerns leading to driverless cars followed by the evolution of collision mitigation systems, how driverless cars operate, and how semi- to fully autonomous vehicles will affect the analysis of claims today and into the future.
NEW: The A – Z’s of Writing A Great Expert Report
NEW: Reviewing Opposing Expert Reports
Forensic Investigation of Slip, Trip, and Fall Incidents
Roadway Variables in Crash Reconstruction
Crashing for Research: Bringing our Crash Tests to You
NEW: Crash Claims related to Commercial Vehicles

NEW: Advanced Automotive Forensics (Beyond Telematics and EDRs)
Beyond the black box, there are other numerous other data sources we can mine from to get answers regarding vehicles and drivers involved in claims. This seminar highlights the newest automotive data forensic tools our engineering experts are utilizing in investigations. We can image a vehicle’s infomatics, telematics, and/ or other ECUs to access diagnostic trouble codes (DTCs) related to the vehicle’s powertrain, chassis, body systems, and more in order to see if any of the faults may have been a factor in the incident or in the vehicle history. With these cutting-edge computer diagnostic tools, we dig deeper into the electronic brains of the vehicle. Most importantly, we make the data make sense in the context of the incident in question based on an engineering evaluation in the context of an incident.
NEW: Reconstructionator Mini
This seminar is a “mini” version of our ACTAR-Accredited advanced Reconstructionator course, intended for intermediate to senior crash reconstruction professionals working in law enforcement or forensic engineering. In the “mini” we run through integrating vehicle specs, EDR data, momentum calculations, energy analysis, and monte carlo statistical methods to present ranges and improve certainty. Participants will learn about the holistic reconstruction toolkit.
