Vehicles endure many dynamic road forces including driving over potholes, reactionary veering, or sudden braking. Those physical forces are further complicated when going from a more stable four wheeled vehicle to a two or even three wheeled motorcycle that relies on driver ability and balance. In some cases, the cause of a failure or crash or a contributing factor can be the motorcycle mechanism itself.
Our accident reconstructionists thoroughly understand motorcycle design, use, maintenance and operation. Through their engineering expertise, we can uncover the facts of a motorcycle-related incident including whether it was the result of human error, design or manufacturing problems, maintenance issues, or mechanical failure.
With access to state-of-the-art tools including the scanning electron microscope at the University of South Carolina, our engineers can reliably evaluate motorcycles and parts to see if failure was caused by on or off road stresses or if failure was the result of improper or inferior manufacturing or materials.
