ESi's automotive team brings together a diverse team of engineers, mechanics, technicians, scientists, and researchers, and equips them with technology needed to gather complex data and provide the most comprehensive analysis possible to our clients.
With members of our team stationed at each of ESi’s offices throughout the country, we are able to deploy the Automotive Practice Group to the site of any automotive accident, regardless of location. When time is of the essence, our Forensic Accident Strategic Team (FAST) can be deployed to the site of an accident within hours to begin capturing data for use by ESi or another organization.
The FAST team is often sent to the site of accidents where it is critical to the investigation to gather data quickly, but carefully, due to changing weather conditions, time-sensitive materials involved in the accident, and other factors that can alter the condition of the accident site.
A minivan was crossing a set of multiple railroad tracks after a train had backed across the crossing on the near track and was subsequently struck by a through train traveling in the opposite direction. ESi was asked to reconstruct the locations and movements of the vehicles leading up to the crash and determine the influence of the backing train on the crash.
This project involved a passenger car stopped in the roadway, while a garbage truck allegedly backed into the front of the vehicle. The driver claimed she observed the garbage truck backing up for approximately 30 seconds and that the truck was traveling at approximately 30 mph.
ESi was retained to investigate an accident of a Porsche Carrera GT.
