Motorcycle Accident Reconstruction

Motorcycle Accident Reconstruction and Forensic Engineering

Motorcycle accident reconstruction requires specialized training and a thorough understanding of the dynamics and operation of motorcycles. Many so called experts list motorcycle accident reconstruction in their areas of expertise with some never having the experience of even riding a motorcycle. Veritech Engineering’s motorcycle expert has over 20 years of experience riding and road-racing motorcycles at a professional level, combined with 8 years of experience working for a major motorcycle manufacturer as a testing and development engineer for motorcycles, ATV’s and UTV’s. This hands-on experience, combined with his education and licensure as a Professional Engineer in the area of mechanical engineering, gives him solid credentials and unmatched qualifications in understanding the dynamics and rider actions associated with motorcycle accidents.

Motorcycle accident investigation begins with a thorough analysis of the available physical evidence. There are typically 3 stages of a motorcycle accident sequence where physical evidence needs to be evaluated: the braking phase, the sliding phase and the impact phase. The braking phase may consist of tire skid marks which need to be evaluated as originating from the front tire, the rear tire, or a combination of both. The sliding phase must be evaluated as to the severity of scrapes or gouges on the road surface as well as evaluating the damage to the motorcycle as a result of sliding. The impact phase often requires an understanding of the design and construction of the motorcycle’s components in order to accurately evaluate the damage associated with an impact. Veritech’s motorcycle accident reconstruction expert is able to draw on his knowledge and experience as an avid rider and former AMA pro-level road-racer to evaluate and understand a rider’s actions and inputs as well as a motorcycle’s response to the rider’s inputs during emergency maneuvers. He is able to utilize his manufacturing and engineering experience to understand motorcycle component failure analysis and product liability issues. Finally, he can draw on his experience as an accident reconstructionist to evaluate all of the available evidence and to put all of the pieces of the puzzle together. The combination of training, education and experience gives our motorcycle expert unmatched credentials and authority in the area of motorcycle accident investigation and reconstruction. Additionally, our motorcycle expert has been qualified by numerous courts around the country to give expert testimony in the areas of mechanical engineering, accident reconstruction, motorcycle vehicle dynamics and motorcycle riding techniques and practices.
