Injuries do occur in low speed collisions and in collisions with no visible damage.

Expose the errors of the opposition's "Expert Witness."

The Problem

  • Significant physical injury can result from collisions at any speed.
  • The injury is often discounted due to little or no physical damage to the vehicles.
  • The extent of injury may not be fully manifested until days or even months after the collision.
  • Accidents are not always accurately investigated.
  • "Expert Witnesses" often go unchallenged.


Common Myths

  • Myth 1: The forces in a traffic collision are like plopping into a chair.
  • Myth 2: No physical damage means your client was not injured.
  • Myth 3: The collision forces were well below an injury threshold.
  • Myth 4: People have conducted crash tests at these speeds and they were not injured, so your client wasn't either.
  • Myth 5: The bumper was not damaged, so the impact speed was under 2.5 M.P.H.
  • Myth 6: Bumpers protect passengers.


The Solution

  • Professional and expert accident investigation and data collection by experienced professionals.
  • Counter the opposition and their technical experts with sound engineering principles.
  • Counter common myths with in depth scientific analysis and documented reports.
  • Have access to technical experts for depositions and court room testimony.
  • Don't let the opposition's technical experts intimidate your team or the jury.
