Traffic Accident Investigation:

 

Forensic accident investigation is the process of collecting information that can later be analysed and used on various platforms. The three main sources of information include but are not limited to:

 

Information from people

  • Statements and versions from involved drivers and passengers

  • Statements and versions from witnesses

  • Reports and documentation compiled by Emergency Services and other relevant roll players  

 

Information from roads

  • On-scene photographs taken on the day the accident occurred

  • Photographs of the physical evidence such as gouges, scrapes, tyre scuffs, debris and other relevant information including road signs and road markings

  • Scene mapping and measurements

 

Information from vehicles

  • Damage assessment

  • Damage photographs including the interior of the involved vehicles

  • Vehicle diagnostic reports

  • Satellite tracking reports

 

Traffic Accident Reconstruction:

 

Forensic accident reconstruction is the effort to determine, from whatever information is available, how an accident occurred.  It includes, amongst others, subjects relating to speed calculation, determining the area of impact, direction of travel, positions on the roadway (at either a fixed point and/ or at varying intervals), vehicle acceleration and deceleration, occupant position, visibility distance, reaction time, reaction distance, and many more.
