Accident reconstruction is a forensic science that requires expertise to adequately put together a collision’s facts. We employ some of the top reconstruction experts in the industry so that our clients have peace of mind knowing that their accidents will be thoroughly investigated from all angles.

Other ways to determine if speed was a factor in a truck accident are eyewitness testimony and surveillance footage. Both of these factors can give context to the cause of the crash and, when used in conjunction with the results of accident reconstruction, can provide your case with the strong foundation necessary to be successful. Other details that may be used to determine the impact speed had on the collision include the damage sustained to both vehicles and any injuries that the crash may have caused.
