An "accident" is "an unexpected and undesirable event".
Accident reconstruction is a branch of causation forensics which tries to determine how and why the accident happened by correctly interpreting the clues left by the remaining physical evidence of the accident, and then by reconstructing and studying the events preceding, during, and following the accident.
This approach is that of working backwards both time –wise and event-wise. This is used in plane crashes, crane failures, bridge collapses, vehicular collisions, etc. Reconstructions of traffic collisions,
All kinds of accidents are investigated through reconstruction methodology —specifically, typically will involve the determination of the factors contributing to the cause and severity of the collision, like excessive speed, poor visibility, a defective tire, the failure of an occupant to wear a safety belt, or the disregard of traffic control devices.
Evidence such as tire-marks and furrows in the dirt may quickly disappear. The chances are excellent that, not only will these important clues not have been measured and documented, they won't even be mentioned in the police report.Reference:
