Veritech’s team has the capability to utilize Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAV, a.k.a. Drones) for use in aerial imagery, video, and photogrammetry. Our cutting-edge Drone Technology allows us to develop fully detailed, three-dimensional terrains of accident sites with dimensional accuracy that rivals total station surveys. Our drone surveying capabilities allow us to capture feature-rich surveys of an accident site in a safe and effective manner.

3-Dimensional data retrieved during drone surveys can be used to improve the accuracy of calculations used during accident reconstructions and to enhance forensic animations and graphics.

As part of our accident investigations, Veritech engineers utilize data obtained during accident site inspections as part of the foundation for our engineering analyses.

Accident site inspections often include:

  • Documentation and measurement of available physical evidence

  • Visibility studies

  • Lighting studies

  • Traffic surveys

  • Analysis of traffic control devices

Vehicle Inspections often include:

  • Vehicle condition after accident occurs

  • Vehicle "black box" downloads

  • Condition of safety systems: airbags and seatbelts

  • Vehicle crush measurement and documentation

  • Braking system assessment

Whether the incident occurred hours ago or years ago, Veritech’s team of highly qualified engineers can visit an accident site and obtain information to serve as a basis for further engineering analysis.

Evidence Locations

Veritech engineers utilize a vast array of scientific instruments to gather and analyze data from site inspections. Principle among these is our 3-dimensional laser survey equipment, also known as a “total station”. This device allows for the precise, three-dimensional measurement and documentation of features and evidence associated with accident sites. The acquired survey data is processed and analyzed using advanced CAD modeling software to create accident site drawings.
