Forensic medical investigation of motor vehicle incidents — Monash University
Have gained several years of postgraduate experience, preferably in a science or engineering related field. Case Examples Two Vehicle Collision: As a sedan was making a left turn into a driveway from a two-lane road, it was broad sided by an oncoming van, injuring the car's driver.
Technology Associates performed a complete accident reconstruction and found that the initial speed of the van was at least 10 mph over the posted speed limit. We successfully demonstrated to a jury that although the Honda had turned in front of the van, the van's excessive speed was the primary cause of the accident. Vehicle Speed Overestimation by Police: A young man was driving his vehicle on a town road when he lost control and crashed into a tree on the opposite side of the road, killing his passenger.
Our investigation found errors in the police sketches and calculations. The police had included an extra ft of skid marks, which could not have been produced by this vehicle because it was equipped with an ABS. Thus, we were able to show he was only traveling 35 mph rather than 65 mph and lost control due to a medical condition. Irving Ojalvo is Chairman of Technology Associates www.
