|Scale Diagram Accident
As part of our accident reconstruction services, our experts can collect roadway measurements and later construct scale diagrams utilized in support of our opinions. Our
reconstructionists normally measure and document collision scenes via total station, a precise and generally accepted method of collection.
In the beginning, the points that our experts collect look like nothing more than several
hundred points. These points, however, each represent an important location, such as
the position of a roadway edge, tire mark, or final rest position of a vehicle.
Next, our accident reconstruction experts utilize a Computer Assisted Drafting (CAD)
program to connect the relevant points.
Once our accident reconstructionists have connected the points representing
lane markings, tire marks and final rest positions of vehicles, the original points can
be hidden, leaving behind a scale diagram that now accurately portrays the scene of
Our experts can then use the scale diagram to explain the dynamics of a collision
and the path that a vehicle took on its way to impact and ultimately final rest. The
final drafts can be presented atop aerial photographs or even animated for the
purpose of illustration.
