Every service offered by Jackson Reconstruction is geared toward one of two common goals: 1) reaching sound, evidence-based opinions through the collection, analysis, and synthesis of the available evidence, and 2) communicating those opinions in the clearest, most effective way possible.
Data Recovery & Analysis
Today, the majority of collisions will involve one or more vehicles with the capability to record relevant, collision-related electronic information, what some might call “black box” information. Whether that information is stored as part of an airbag system, an engine control system, or some variety of collision mitigation system, if it’s there, Jackson Reconstruction can recover that data on site or, in some cases, get the necessary physical components into the hands of the manufacturer so they can recover it. Once recovered, we analyze the data with an understanding of what to look for, how the information is recorded, and any limitations inherent in the sources so that we can properly incorporate it into our investigation.
Graphics & Animation
An opinion is only as good as the opiner’s ability to express it. As we go through our process of collecting, analyzing, and synthesizing the evidence into final opinions, we’re considering how best to communicate those opinions. Visual illustrations, from simple, top-down perspectives to full animations, are often the perfect tool to complement a concise, written report by providing to the intended audience a visual means to understand the information, be it collision sequences, relative speeds, driver actions, and so on. To create these visuals, Jackson Reconstruction utilizes cutting-edge graphics and animation software to maximize our ability to show you, not just tell you.
Advanced Evidence Collection
A reconstruction is the finished product of a best-fit puzzle where the pieces are made up of all the bits of information collected over the course of the investigation. The better the pieces, the better fit of the finished puzzle. With this in mind, Jackson Reconstruction uses laser instruments and drone photography/photogrammetry to accurately document the relevant evidence from the collision scene, ensuring precision pieces for a better finished product.
24/7 Rapid Response
Collisions can happen at any time, night or day, and when they do, you need answers as soon as possible so that informed decisions can be made in a timely manner. On top of that, evidence can be volatile; it doesn’t hang around forever. Tire evidence can degrade rapidly, especially on heavily traveled highways, and telling electronic evidence can be overwritten. For these reasons and more, Jackson Reconstruction is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week to get investigative boots on the ground to start the process of getting you solid answers.
