Castle Rock, CO – Veritech Consulting Engineering continues to stay on the forefront of technological advances in accident reconstruction techniques through ongoing training and certification programs. Two of the principal engineers at Veritech completed advanced data analysis courses in the fourth quarter to keep the firm on the leading edge of motor vehicle accident reconstruction technology. “The technology of accident reconstruction is moving toward making maximum use of pre-accident data collected by the multiple onboard computerized systems that ensure correct vehicle operation including the specialized event data recorders that assist heavy truck drivers in safe driving,” said Mark Kittel, senior forensic engineer at Veritech. “The interpretation of the recorded data is not always obvious.
