With more people riding bicycles for their health, crashes between motor vehicles and bicyclists are increasing. Our Reconstructionists have specialized training in this category of crash and are skilled in the use of all acceptable mathematical solutions to calculate the speed of involved vehicles. A number of our staff members are avid bicyclists and apply their experience and knowledge to the crash analysis. We are familiar with the traffic laws, strategy and tactics that apply to the bicyclist as well as the operator of the motor vehicle.
An in-depth investigation should include:
- Speeds of the vehicles
- Night discernibility and conspicuity issues
- Adherence to applicable traffic laws
- Mechanical condition of bicycle
- Strategy and tactics of all units involved
