Analyzing accidents and collisions involving motor vehicles and other equipment can get complicated. Although forensic sciences and engineering calculations are certainly most necessary, often times there is a need to understand vehicle control mechanisms and components (braking systems, steering systems, and suspension systems) in order to accurately determine causes of these occurrences. Also, when 18 wheelers and other types of commercial motor vehicles are involved in accidents, determinations as to driver and carrier compliance with Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations must be made.
Having extensive background with vehicle control mechanisms and components, as well as commercial driver and truck company compliance, Truck Dynamics has the background and equipment to evaluate these concerns that assist with accident investigation. More importantly, the determinations that we report through detailed vehicle inspections and material review enhances the accuracy of most accident reconstructions.
When an 18 wheeler drives out of control, the results can be devastating, even when the vehicle is not loaded to capacity.
Identifying the precise condition of brakes, steering, and suspension of 18 wheelers and other vehicles, post accident, can be instrumental with determinations as to what contributed to the accident. Equally important are essential knowledge and skills that a Commercial Motor Vehicle driver possesses. Tom Truss of Truck Dynamics has been involved with thousands of occurrences since 1987 and has assisted with understanding the mechanics of thousands of accidents through vehicle inspections, testing, and other procedures.
Truck Dynamics, based in Bryan, Texas, is equipped to inspect and test critical systems of trucks, trailers, and automobiles. Our mobile diagnostic vehicle is outfitted with power tools, equipment, and test devices as well as photograph and video equipment.
