Automotive Collisions

High Velocity Automotive Collision

High Velocity Automotive Collision

High speed collision analyses are generally more complex than low speed collisions and increase in complexity if there are multiple occupants involved.  Additionally, when examining high speed, multiple occupant collisions, occupant-to-occupant interaction can dramatically affect injury potential.   BRC's biomechanics experts are often asked to analyze high speed collisions and assess injury causation issues, such as point(s) of impact, rollovers, ejections, restraint system use/non-use, occupant proximity to airbag, airbag deployment, and seatback design.

Low Velocity Automotive Collision

Low Velocity Automotive Collision

In low velocity collisions, an injury causation analysis involves an examination of the available evidence, an analysis of the movements of the vehicle and its occupants, and a review of the forces related to the body's injury tolerance.  Whether the incident involved a rear/frontal impact, a sideswipe collision, or a backing collision, BRC's biomechanics experts have the experience and expertise necessary to assess and determine the incident's potential to cause injury as our consultants have conducted, participated in, and published papers on low velocity collisions.
