Tractor trailers and other large commercial vehicles are a complex mix of mechanical, electrical, pneumatic, and hydraulic systems that are controlled by a human. When these large machines and their drivers are involved in an incident, it takes an expert to understand the causes of what happened as well as factors that may have contributed to the loss.
Our truck and heavy machinery experts have in-depth knowledge of truck dynamics and components, including air brakes, as well as the safety codes and regulations in place to ensure safe truck operation. Our human factors consultant examines a roadway incident in relation to the physical, cognitive and behavioral aspects of the human-vehicle interaction. This could include factors such as distracted driving, stress and fatigue, attention, visual perception and reaction, conspicuity of roadway hazards, roadway design, looming, weather, and ambient lighting.
In addition to our human factors consultant, we bring a full range of investigative and analytical services to bear, from complex crash reconstruction to developing demonstrative evidence for court testimony. Utilizing 3D scanning, we map out the incident scene to create scalable animations to fully understand and demonstrate the physical evidence of a truck related incident.
