Highway and Transportation Engineering

Were highway defects or deficiencies related to the crash?
Did conditions or operations conform to established practice?

We can answer these and other questions related to personal injury thought to have resulted from highway defects.
We examine crash sites and review available information to determine if roadway conditions were a cause of a crash, and we assist in identifying responsible parties when in question.

We can be at a crash site quickly; critical when conditions are likely to change.
