Automotive Accident Reconstruction

Accident reconstruction is the application of scientific and engineering principles to investigate, document, analyze, report findings and provide expert opinions about issues that arise in an accident.  The reconstruction typically results in conclusions and opinions about the event sequence and the cause of the accident.  The goal of accident reconstruction is to determine what happened based on all of the available information about the accident.  WHA expends the effort needed to insure that the investigation is thorough and the issues are carefully evaluated using state-of-the-art analysis methods and techniques.  In this way, WHA's engineers and scientists provide reliable interpretations of the critical information available and arrive at the appropriate conclusions and opinions about the cause of the accident.  WHA has the experience and forensic tools necessary to provide high quality and state-of-the-art investigation, evidence analysis and scientifically-based conclusions and opinions about accident causation.
