Course Description

 

A continuation of the 2 day Motor Fleet Accident Investigation course, which stresses problem solving with field exercises and case studies.  Students are provided the data necessary to perform calculations followed by analysis and reconstruction of actual case studies.

 

·          Reconstruction/Part 1 - The discussion includes how and why accident reconstructions are made, principles involved and procedures used, and principles of energy and momentum.

·          Accident Evidence Procedures - A review of the procedures for analyzing tires and lamps from vehicles involved in accidents.

·          Perspective Grid Photography - The procedure for using photographs for analyzing accidents is outlined, along with practical exercises by students.

·          Reconstruction/Part 2 - Covers reconstruction of speeds from skid slides, vaults, etc.  The student is provided with sufficient data to perform practical calculations, followed by analysis, and projects in time/distance/acceleration relationships.

·          Reconstruction of Case Studies - Project work on sample accidents under the guidance of the instructor.

·          Litigation - Gathering information, selecting experts, preserving evidence, and determining court admissibility in preparation for legal action.
