U.S. Forensic performs tire failure analysis, allowing experts to identify the origin and cause of a tire failure. What Tire Failure Analysis Is Tire failures can cause the loss of control in a vehicle, potentially resulting in an accident. Tire failure experts check for defects that may indicate design, manufacture, or service errors. They will […]
U.S. Forensic staffs a storm damage inspection team, offering our expert opinion on the origin and cause of structural damage due to water, wind, hail, hurricanes, tornadoes, and floods.
Metallurgical Testing U.S. Forensic performs metallurgical testing on failed equipment, structural components, oilfield, natural gas, and plant equipment, piping, storage tanks, hydraulic systems, valves, fasteners, and metal structures. Whether you are investigating a single component or dealing with a system failure, you can rely on our Failure Analysis team’s expertise and testing techniques to meet […]
SIU Evaluations U.S. Forensic provides special investigation units (SIU) with fact-based evidence needed to assess cases. We conduct automotive and property SIU evaluations to determine how a loss occurred and whether or not the evidence matches with what is being reported. Damage Consistency SIU Evaluations Our experts perform damage consistency evaluations to identify whether or […]
In addition to crash data, our accident reconstructionists utilize specialized equipment for recording speed and distance traveled. The VBOX Video HD2 provides our experts with real-time synchronised video and data with graphical overlay. Although developed to assist race care drivers to improve speed and handling, the VBOX data is perfect for use in the accident reconstruction process.
We evaluate heavy equipment failures (cranes, forklifts, farm equipment, etc.) to determine the cause of the accident, fire, or mechanical issue.
Our experts are here to help you evaluate a low-speed impact, sometimes referred to as “minor impact” cases. These cases can be challenging, but our approach has proven successful. Timeliness and expert selection are key. Current Challenges Importance of Securing Evidence in a Low Speed Impacts….Early This holds true today (as it did in the […]
U.S. Forensic performs asbestos detection evaluations to deliver the information needed to determine if a building is safe to inspect after a fire. We can also ensure it is safe to begin renovation or demolition activities. Our experts collect bulk samples throughout a building and provide a determination as to the presence of asbestos within […]
Our structural engineering experts conduct property evaluations across the United States. Our primary focus is assisting our clients in determining the cause of damage. Is the damage related to a weather event? Did it occur suddenly or is there a long term contributor? Was there a construction defect involved? Was there a design defect that […]
Crash Data Recorders (CDR) or Electronic Control Modules (ECM) Our mechanical engineers and accident reconstructionists download crash data from passenger and commercial vehicles. Investing in acquiring the imaged crash data could prove extremely valuable. The electronic control module, crash data recorder, or what some refer to as the “Black Box,” record speed, braking, and acceleration. […]
