ARL Crash Investigations will forensically measure and photograph the crash scene and extract and interpret associated data from the vehicle’s Crash Data Recorder or Engine Control Module.  ARL’s ASE Certified Master Automotive Technicians, ASE Certified Heavy Truck Technicians and Hydraulic and Air Brake Specialists will forensically inspect, document, and photograph the vehicles involved in the collision, performing a comprehensive forensic brake system component analysis.   ARL has the ability to offer expert opinions and testimony involving Commercial Vehicle Federal Regulations, Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards, vehicle design and dynamics, as well as component failure analysis and occupant kinematics. Utilizing advanced computer equipment, ARL can conduct acceleration and braking tests of the involved vehicles.  ARL reviews all associated documents from various sources (witness statements, accident reports, medical records) and completes a technical analysis report of the collision events to provide clear expert testimony at hearings and trials.

Additionally, with the training and certification to review and interpret the regulations and traffic control plans, ARL can investigate and reconstruct collisions occurring within roadway work zone areas.
