Accident Investigations



Accident Investigations in transportation accidents includes accident investigations involving

  • highway and motor vehicle,
  • railroad,
  • aircraft and aviation,
  • marine and boating, and
  • other modes of transportation.

It is the scientific process of investigating, analyzing, and drawing conclusions about the causes and events during a vehicle collision.

Re-constructionists conduct collision analysis and reconstruction to identify the causation and contributing factors, such as the role of the drivers, vehicles, roadways and the environment.

Workplace and Industrial Accident Investigation involves

  • determining what happened,
  • the cause of accidents,
  • compliance or non-compliance with safety standards,
  • what can be done to prevent them in the future, and
  • risk management strategies.
