DID YOU KNOW that as much as 90% of accidents and incidents involve a Human Factors cause?

An in-depth accident reconstruction takes into consideration the analysis of the critical human factor element: Driver Response and collision-avoidance opportunities.

The role of Driver Response is pivotal in both the occurrence and severity of an accident. Reconstruction of the Driver Response provides valuable insights into opportunities for avoiding and/or mitigating collision severity. These findings, irrespective of causal factors such as inattention, distraction, fatigue, or overspeed leading to Driver Response failure, are instrumental in dispute resolution.

Environmental factors, such as weather conditions and road infrastructure, further shape Driver Response in accident reconstruction. A slippery road due to rain or snow can affect a driver's ability to control their vehicle, while poorly designed and signed roadways may contribute to errors in Driver Responses.

Overall, grasping the significance of human factors in accident reconstructions, particularly Driver Responses, serves as a critical avenue for identifying opportunities to prevent and/or diminish collision severity—a crucial aspect in expert findings for effective dispute resolution.
