How Car Accident Reconstruction Works
Accident reconstruction is a complicated process. Experts use scientific measures to determine what happened during an accident. Since accident reconstruction often supports a legal case, experts must ensure the details are as accurate as possible.
Accident reconstructionists must know about many subjects, including:
- Computer software
- Car dynamics
Experts will look at how fast the vehicles were going, at what angles the collision occurred, and more. According to the National Society of Professional Engineers (NSPE), engineers can provide accident reconstruction services after an accident.
Accident Reconstruction Details
Experts will examine the scene of the accident and work backward from there. Relevant information in the investigation can include:
- Physical injuries
- Vehicle damage
- Skid marks, accident debris, and other signs of damage
- Black box data from the at-fault driver’s vehicle
- Specific details about each car
- The weather or road conditions during the accident
- Speeds of each vehicle
- Angles and positions of each vehicle
Accident reconstruction experts will look at many different facts about the crash. They’ll use computer programs to recreate the collision. The goal is to show precisely what happened on the accident date.
These services can be crucial during a court case. If the other driver or their insurance company is questioning the accident, accident reconstruction can help.
A recreation can show driver carelessness that wasn’t obvious before. Experts might also uncover other causes of the crash, such as faulty car parts.

Your Rights After an Auto Accident
All drivers have a legal duty to drive safely. If someone is careless and causes an accident, they are responsible for the costs. Under the Official Code of Georgia Annotated (OCGA) §51-1-6, you can seek compensation when someone fails in their legal duty.
The at-fault driver is liable for all losses from your accident. That can include damages like:
- Doctor and hospital bills
- Prescription medications
- Lost wages
- Loss of earning capacity
- Vehicle repair costs
- Pain and suffering
- Mental anguish
You’ll also need to prove the other driver’s fault. Unfortunately, the other driver might deny liability. The driver’s insurance company will also look for ways to reduce what they pay.
Accident reconstruction can uncover the truth. Our experts will help show who was indeed at fault for your crash. The evidence we gather can help strengthen your claim to fight for what you deserve.
We can also help calculate all of your damages. If you were not at fault, you shouldn’t have to pay for the accident costs. We may also be able to help if you lost a loved one in the accident. Reach out today to learn more.
What to Do After a Car Accident
If you suffered injuries in an accident, you can protect your rights. Here are some helpful steps to take.
Report the Accident
Someone involved in the crash should call the police. If the other driver cannot or will not call the police, you can do it. Responding officers should create an accident report. Make sure you know where to get a copy of this report.
Document the Scene
Any information you can gather at the scene will help your case. Your lawyers can use evidence from the scene when recreating the crash.
If you can, take pictures of your injuries and the scene. Also, talk to any eyewitnesses. Ask for their names and contact information. Witness testimony can be beneficial to your case.
Look around for any traffic or surveillance cameras. There may be footage of your accident. Tell your lawyer about this so that they can investigate.
Get Medical Attention
Car accidents often cause severe injuries. If you need emergency medical attention, call for an ambulance. Don’t wait to get help at the scene if you need it.
If you don’t get treatment at the scene, see a doctor as soon as possible. You will need medical records showing that you sought treatment.
If you wait too long to see a doctor, it will hurt your case. The insurance company will look for ways to use it against you. Thankfully, our team can help if you’re not sure how to get medical help.
