Collision Reconstruction & Injury Cause Analysis

Automotive failures and collisions occur for a reason. Though we like to call them accidents, there is always a responsible party or parties. When the question of liability is your concern, whether it be who ran a red light or why did a vehicle catch fire, Impact General understands the need for definitive answers.

Biomechanics & Injury Causation

When it is necessary to determine whether or not a claimed injury is consistent with the claimed incident, biomechanics is playing a powerful role in today's insurance and legal industries. Biomechanics is ideal for cases involving low-speed collision injuries, slip/trip and falls, soft-tissue injuries, repetitive motion injuries, and various workers compensation claims.
