CRASH Data Retrieval "Black Box Download”

Many vehicles on the roads today have the capability to store collision related data. The Airbag Control Module, commonly referred to as the “black box”, contains information that can be crucial to the outcome of the investigation. The primary function of an Airbag Control Module (ACM), installed in a supported vehicle, is to analyze vehicle’s change in velocity and to determine whether a deployment of the occupant protection systems is warranted. As a secondary function the ACM of a supported vehicle is capable of recording data and storing information that is relevant to the collision. Information stored within the module varies based on the manufacture’s specifications and may contain the following information: vehicle speed, change in velocity, engine RPM, brake switch indicator, ABS switch indicator, seatbelt use indicator, seat sensor data, seat position at the time of the collision as well as other pertinent data. When properly imaged, utilizing authentic hardware and software, an analyst can interpret the data and utilize it during the collision reconstruction. CRASH, LLC uses Bosch CRASH Data Retrieval hardware and the latest version of the software to image the modules of the supported vehicles. The experts at CRASH, LLC are able to provide accurate analysis of the information obtained from the module in order to use it during the investigation. Our experts validate the data reported by the module through traditional methods of accident reconstruction. CRASH, LLC also provides “download only” service to our clients. Initial consultation with CRASH, LLC expert is always free. Contact us to find out if your vehicle is currently supported by Bosch CDR System.

Post-Crash Vehicle Examination

Post collision examination of the vehicles involved in a collision is an important part of a complete accident investigation. The importance of meeting the regulations set forth by the US Department of Transportation (US DOT) should not be dismissed during a collision analysis. A post crash vehicle examination is conducted to ensure that the equipment installed in the vehicle meets the original manufacturer’s standards and safety requirements. Often the vehicles are modified from their original condition to provide a “custom” look and performance. In many cases, the modification to the vehicle is performed by the owner and not by a certified mechanic. Some replacements and modifications of the OEM parts results in diminished performance of the vehicle and may influence the safety features that were designed by the manufacturer at the time of production. Our experts always conduct a post crash examination of all available vehicles in order to collect relevant evidence and to ensure the vehicles met manufacturer’s specifications at the time of the collision. CRASH, LLC experts are available to respond to the storage facility on short notice in order to conduct the examination and collect pertinent evidence. Contact us for a free consultation.

Lamp Examination and Analysis

Statistically the majority of serious motor vehicle accidents occur at night on rural roadways or highways. Drivers involved in a motor vehicle collision often state that they never saw the vehicle approaching.The ability of a driver to discern an approaching vehicle on a dark roadway is greatly diminished if the headlamps are not on. In cases where a claim that the vehicle did not have its lights on is made, a lamp analysis becomes a critical component of the accident reconstruction. Lamp examination allows investigators to determine if the lamp was incandescent at the time a vehicle was involved in an accident. CRASH, LLC experts have years of experience in automotive lamp examination and analysis. Often the lamps and light bulbs from a vehicle involved in a collision can provide investigators with evidence, which would otherwise be left to scrutiny. The lamp examination may reveal the status of the lamp at the time of the collision. Contact us for a free consultation.

Occupant Restraint Examination and Analysis

The use of the seatbelt by the driver and passengers is often left open to debate and scrutiny when a vehicle is involved in an accident. Insurance companies want to know that the occupants of the insured vehicle were buckled up and in compliance with the state seatbelt laws. Failure to wear a seatbelt may result in a lower claim settlement by the insurance company or a claim being dismissed. Often times injuries associated with wearing a seatbelt during a collision are not properly documented by the first responders. Our experts have years of hands-on experience and are able to conduct a complete examination of the seatbelts. CRASH, LLC leaves no question unanswered when conducting an examination and documentation of seatbelt use or nonuse. Our experts will respond to a location where the vehicle is being stored or conduct the examination in our facility. CRASH, LLC experts will prepare a comprehensive examination report to be used during insurance claim process and/or courtroom litigation. Contact us for a free consultation.

Forensic Mapping and Scene Diagramming

Detailed scene diagram is an essential part of a collision investigation. CRASH, LLC experts have produced hundreds of diagrams and forensic maps of crash and crime scenes. Utilizing the latest instruments such as: a total station and computer aided design software, experts at CRASH, LLC produce forensic maps and diagrams of vehicles, roadways, intersections and buildings, just to name a few.

The high resolution photographs are provided to the client and are made part of a comprehensive accident reconstruction and analysis report at the conclusion of the investigation. CRASH, LLC can produce large scale, high resolution photographs for courtroom presentation. Contact us for a free consultation.

Human Factors Analysis

Statistics indicate that 41% of all traffic collisions in the United Stated are related to driver’s difficulty in perception and information processing, 53% are related to attention problems, such as: distractions and pre-occupation. With 94% of all traffic collisions on American roadways being attributed to the operator “error”, human factors analysis is a critical part of accident reconstruction. Although a very important part, human factors in collision analysis remains the most overlooked component of accident investigation. It is often open to interpretation by the investigator, the courts and the juries. Our experts use scientific data collected by leading human factors researchers when considering driver’s behavior and actions during the collision in order to achieve maximum precision during analysis. The human factors analysis completed by CRASH, LLC provides a comprehensive model that illustrates how drivers have responded to a particular stimulus during studies and research. Our experts compare the responses documented by the studies and research to the driver’s response and actions in the collision under investigation. CRASH, LLC experts always utilize the information from the scientific community to validate their opinions and findings. At CRASH, LLC we do not blindly accept “commonly used” and “cookie cutter” values of perception response time often featured in reconstruction reports. At CRASH, LLC our experts built a custom model supported by science for each individual collision and driver we investigate. Contact us for a free consultation.
