Accident Reconstruction & Biomechanics
San Francisco Car Accident Lawyers
Sometimes, car accidents can be confusing and undecipherable, especially
in cases of hit-and-run accidents, accidents without witnesses, or accidents
where witnesses’ testimonies conflict. To help, accident reconstruction
and biomechanics can help determine factors leading up to a person’s
serious injuries when involved in these types of accidents. In doing so,
a person may be compensated for their injuries if results determine the
other party involved was at fault.

How Are These Tests Used?
By determining the physics of car accidents, law enforcement officers and

for parties involved in accidents to receive accurate information regarding
accidents. Of course, this gives individuals who are better evidence of
the accident when filing a lawsuit against the alleged negligent party.

An Example: Rigid Bumper Systems
In addition, many systems are examined through accident reconstructions
and biomechanics in order to determine whether various systems are useful
and safe. One of the systems examined through these tests were rigid bumper systems.
A rigid bumper system is a steel bumper connected to the frame of a vehicle
or that attaches with mounting brackets. These types of bumpers are common
on pickup trucks, SUVs, vans, and sport utility vehicles. They are designed
to dissipate impact energy and are said to better avoid serious injuries
in the case of an accident.
To gather results, accident reconstruction professional reenacted low-speed
collisions including vehicle-to-vehicle collisions and barrier collisions.
After the tests were performed on these rigid bumper systems, results
showed that these bumpers did not dismiss the probability of serious injuries
such as traumatic brain injuries.
