Commercial Vehicle Accident Reconstruction

Commercial vehicle accidents are complex events involving multiple vehicles, mechanical systems, electronic data systems, and human factors. Unlike passenger cars, each commercial vehicle presents a unique electronic data system and requires special handling for proper preservation of evidence.

Kimley-Horn’s forensic engineers have years of experience inspecting and preserving evidence of accident scenes and commercial vehicles.

Kimley-Horn’s forensic engineers use the latest technology to record data such as commercial vehicle data downloads, laser scanners (LIDAR), aerial photogrammetry using drones, and total stations. Our professionals are experienced in gathering and analyzing documentation of vehicle maintenance, safety programs, driver training and qualifications, hours of service, and out-of-service criteria.
