Collision Reconstruction and CDR

Xpera’s collision reconstruction expertise is vital to providing our clients with sound solutions. Utilising the latest technology and proven reconstruction techniques, Xpera’s expert certified investigators examine collision scenes and vehicles, analyse collected data and formulate expert conclusions that are robust in a legal setting for passenger, commercial, motorcycle and pedestrian collisions. Crash Data Retrieval (CDR) is the “tool” used by collision reconstruction experts to retrieve information from a vehicle involved in a collision. Data is recovered from the safety system found in many passenger cars, SUV’s and light trucks. To mount a successful personal injury claim or defend one, the utilisation of the CDR tool is essential to ensure that the valuable evidence is not lost. Data represents best evidence that can be significantly more reliable than eyewitnesses. Deemed as accepted evidence in Canadian and U.S courts, CDR has served as powerful evidence when supported with testimony from a court certified Collision Reconstructionist. CDR may assist the litigation process by supplying data about the loss such as:

  • Speed of vehicle at impact
  • Number of seated occupants and seatbelts worn safety
  • Severity of impact
  • Deployment times and location of passenger
  • Order of impacts during a “chain collision”
  • Acceleration, deceleration and braking
  • Time between collision events, head on/sideswipe
  • Multi-events and number of events
  • Airbag warning lights on/off before impact
  • Injuries consistent with recorded data
