Mechanical Forensic Investigations

In many accidents, the central question is whether vehicles or other mechanical equipment were contributing factors. VFE engineers are qualified to perform exacting mechanical inspections to determine if a component failure or maintenance issue was a factor in the accident. Our mechanical engineers investigate a wide variety of loss types, including, but not limited to, vehicle accident reconstruction, machine failure, water loss/ damage, explosions, failure of fire protection systems, among other potential factors. Our leading-edge laboratory offers a 10,000 pound vehicle lift for post-collision analysis and non-destructive testing.
