Liability in traffic accidents is a constant uncertainty, the reasons span from the difficulty to recall exactly how an accident happened, involvement of multiple individuals, having to move from the location of the accident to alleviate traffic, to weather conditions. Thus, a rapid response evaluation of the accident can be key to determining liability, and even more, to be able to reconstruct accidents and consequently determining the potential injuries in an accident. A limitation to a rapid response evaluation is not having enough information of the incident beforehand, bringing up the potential of not gathering enough evidence to perform a thorough reconstruction of the accident. NBI minimizes these limitations by involving experts with vast experience in diverse accident scenarios. Our experts have performed innumerable reconstruction of accidents as well as biomechanic analyses, covering single car to car collisions, chain reaction collisions, pedestrian, cyclist or motorcycle impacts, falls from building shafts, stair falls, pedestrians roll-overs, car ejections, off road accidents, among others. Such extensive experience allows for NBI expert to have an efficacious rapid respond to each specific collision and to effectively gather evidence regardless of the conditions of the accident.
NBI makes use of cutting-edge technology when performing evaluations and assures that their experts have ample knowledge in the use and interpretation of such technology. Electronic data from vehicles can be retrieved, providing valuable information of the vehicle such as the speed of the vehicle at the time of collision, seat occupancy, if seatbelts were buckled, if airbags were deployed, the rate of rotation of the vehicle, status of the brakes, or even if cruise control was on. Yet another aspect to consider in a rapid response evaluation are the unexpected changes that might be performed to roads, such as adding a bike lane or any construction taking place at the location of the accident. Thus, a prompt scene inspection can provide the exact conditions of the accident location. To address this, NBI uses drone technology to record the site of incident and creates simulations relative to the environment of the specific location; within ~15 min, NBI experts can get a recording at the precise location of accident, providing a perspective of the accident resembling the actual conditions of the accident.
Alongside, NBI experts employs FARO 3D scanners to capture vehicle damages and hence be able to reconstruct accidents, estimate forces applied to cars, bicycles or motorcycles, the directions of the forces and recreating the accident through photogrammetry. Further, FARO scanners are used by NBI rapid response experts to create 3D building models which can be used to replicate interior spaces, their dimensions, and create simulations within the environment of accident to have a reliable representation of the accident.
A rapid response evaluation is not only important for evidence collection but also to help ameliorate the stress brought up by an accident and the concerns regarding its aftermath. The ample experienced NBI specialists consider almost every single plausible scenario of an accident and can rapidly evaluate which evidence will be key to understanding and analyzing an accident, thus mitigating the anguish in the ones involved in the accident. Further, an effective rapid response evaluation can help avoid further gathering of evidence which could be troublesome and time consuming, as well as bring back trauma to the ones involved. Therefore, NBI cares about providing a trustworthy rapid response evaluation up to the needed extent.
