Vehicle Collision Injury
According to Transport Canada reports, motor vehicle accidents cause approximately 10,000 serious injuries every year. Each one of those crashes involved a specific set of circumstances that affected the outcome, severity, and preventability of these injuries – and the forensic engineers at CEP can uncover the details that matter most.
To understand exactly what caused the injuries, it is important to evaluate the moments prior to and after a vehicle collision. Regardless of whether an injury involves passengers, pedestrians, or cyclists, questions about causation are often largely the same: who was driving? Were the reported injuries a result of this incident? Do the injuries reveal anything about the cause of the incident? If the person was restrained, was it possible to have been injured in the manner reported? If they were not, what would have happened to them because of the crash?
Beyond the more obvious injuries that can occur due to high-speed collisions, less-obvious injuries like TMJ, concussions, and whiplash-associated disorders are often the result of collisions occurring at slower speeds.
By carefully reviewing the incident and comparing the results of the sustained injuries’ medical diagnoses, our biomechanical engineers can validate the relationship between the incident and the reported injuries. As a result, our clients are able to resolve these types of situations with clarity and confidence.
