Vehicle Forensics and Crash Investigations

This is a sample of the quality of the 3D Forensic Animations we provide for many cases.

Following a serious crash, whenever the possibility exists that “mechanical failure” may be a viable defense, a vehicle autopsy should be performed to either confirm or dispel the theory. Absent a proper investigation and analysis, reasonable doubt can be easily raised.

Comprehensive Motor Vehicle Services & Consulting offers extensive investigative services to address any vehicle mechanical condition. As the result of years of experience in this area, including high profile and major motor vehicle homicide cases, expert opinion and testimony is available for all types and models of vehicles.

Typical investigations include:

  • Vehicle disassembly and inspection
  • Computer diagnostics and analysis – including commercial vehicle computers (ECM)
  • Crash Data Retrieval (black box analysis) – CDR, ECM, and CAN
  • Analysis of vehicle components
  • Causal connection in crash cases
  • Background research on subject vehicle, as well as similar vehicles
  • Review and analysis of related investigative reports
  • Operational testing
  • Comprehensive report, with photographs and summary

The proper Vehicle Autopsy™ and related component analysis has proven to be a unique and invaluable asset to the crash investigation. Absent this important element, the crash investigation may be deficient. All essential elements of the driver/vehicle/roadway system involved in crash causation should be investigated and analyzed. As the result of the investigation by CMVSC, special emphasis is applied for the purpose of analyzing the contribution of vehicle factors to crash causation. As the direct result of over twenty five years of continuing education, training, and experience in the automotive and commercial vehicle technology field, combined with over twenty five years of law enforcement crash investigation, Brian F. Chase has established a proven track record as an expert in the realm of vehicle autopsies and crash causation analysis. His services are requested internationally for high profile vehicle cases.

POST CRASH VEHICLE AUTOPSIES CAN BE PERFORMED ON ALL VEHICLES, FROM MOPEDS TO TRACTOR TRAILERS, FROM LOW IMPACT CRASHES, TO MAJOR COLLISIONS, OUR PROFESSIONAL SERVICES PROVIDE ANSWERS

“Brian Chase and his team were amazing. Their knowledge base guided me and the case to a positive resolution.  The Defense expert called Brian Chase the guru. I knew then my client and I were in good hands. He dissected the commercial vehicle like a surgeon and found many issues in direct violation with the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations. Thank you Brian!  Looking forward to working together again.”
