Air brakes on semis and commercial vehicles differ substantially from those in passenger vehicles. Unique mechanical systems along with the vehicle weights involved require specialized knowledge to accurately perform commercial vehicle accident reconstruction.

Knowledge of truck safety standards and mechanical systems is often needed for a complete evaluation of accidents involving these types of vehicles. Our engineers have successfully investigated accidents involving over-the-road trucks, ore haulers, and numerous types of construction equipment.

Our engineers are knowledgeable in the testing, inspection and failure analysis of modern air brake systems.  Download of black box data is a routine component of commercial vehicle accident investigations.
