Transportation crashes and casualties are very complex events that occur over a very short period of time. After the scene is cleared, many questions need to be answered relating to criminal, civil and professional issues. The forensic investigation and reconstruction of these events requires a broad understanding and analysis of the evidence and application of reconstruction principals in order to determine how and why it occurred. The Introtech staff is highly skilled in evaluating the evidence from people, the units involved in the incident, the environment and technology to resolve the relevant questions and issues.
The staff at Introtech has over two hundred years of combined investigative and reconstruction experience in military and law enforcement agencies. We apply this vast on-scene experience along with our specialized training and education from a wide variety of educational institutions to reconstruct transportation casualties. We utilize the latest technology to measure and analyze the physical evidence from the crash scene, the vehicles and the overall environment.
Many modern vehicles may contain additional vital evidence from on-board navigation systems, air bag control modules, engine control modules, power train control modules, advanced braking systems and other systems The Introtech staff has the training, hardware and software to collect and properly analyze this data.
Our staff is trained and experienced in the analysis of environmental issues, traffic control devices, navigation systems, human factors, biomechanics and other specialized issues that directly relate to transportation casualties. We apply this knowledge to the land, marine and aviation environments.
We employ sophisticated computer programs to assist us in our analysis and calculations as well as the ability to conduct computer simulations to crash events. We have the in-house capability of preparing 2-D/3-D animations and other exhibits such as CAD drawings and power point presentations to graphically demonstrate our opinions to the trier of fact.
No one person can maintain currency on the increasingly complex nature of crash reconstruction and general investigations. That is why Introtech employs the team approach to our work. Each investigator and reconstructionist has individual specialization that can be called upon to assist in a multi-disciplinary approach to an investigation. Working together as a cohesive and organized team, our staff applies various areas of expertise to properly investigate, analyze and develop conclusions about a particular issue.
Due to the wide ranging training and experience of our staff, at times we have been called upon to investigate issues outside of the typical transportation environment. In addition to traffic, aviation and marine crash investigations, we have the ability to conduct general investigations, firearms and use of force issues, law enforcement issues, boating safety, industrial safety, mechanical failures, fire investigations and general workplace safety. With our extensive networking ability, we are able to involve other skilled investigators or scientists to assist us in a case that may fall outside of our area of expertise.
The Introtech staff is dedicated to applying their skill, knowledge, education and experience to properly investigate an incident, crash or transportation casualty. Our reconstruction staff have all attained the prestigious accreditation from the Accreditation Commission of Traffic Accident Reconstructionists (ACTAR). Our staff maintains membership in a wide variety of professional organizations such as the Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE), National Association of Professional Accident Reconstruction Specialists (NAPARS), Ohio Traffic Accident Reconstruction Association (OTARA), Illinois Association of Technical Accident Investigators (IATAI), National Safe Boating Council, National Association of Traffic Accident Reconstructionists and Investigators (NATARI), Society of American Military Engineers (SAME) and others.
Our work has taken us throughout the United States and Canada as well as Puerto Rico and other Caribbean Nations. Our experts have testified in municipal, county, state and Federal Courts throughout the United States and Canada.
Because of our commitment to the accurate and comprehensive analysis of an incident, our opinion ultimately may not be favorable to our client. You can count on us to call it like we see it. Regardless of the outcome of our investigation, you can be confident that Introtech’s work and conclusions adheres to our core values of:
