It takes constant reading, study, and analysis of accident information and case reconstructions to keep improving your performance, both in the field and in the courtroom. Vehicular Accident Investigation and Reconstruction concentrates on the development of the skills, education, and information needed for an accident investigation and reconstruction, including the necessary tools, some of the pitfalls facing the investigator/reconstructionist and the latest advances and techniques in the field. The book is divided into four sections: Section 1 -- Describes the need for proper accident investigation, the specialized tools, education, and the necessary mindset Section 2 -- Deals with reconstruction, which requires deductive reasoning, logic, physics, engineering, and a general knowledge of the accident subject Section 3 -- Discusses occupant kinematics or body movement and reaction to external forces, including human anatomy, physiology, human tolerance to impact, and occupant reactions to various types of impacts Section 4 -- Discusses latest techniques for investigation and reconstruction, citing examples such as electronic scene mapping, computer animation, computer accident simulation, and the use of the computer in the courtroom.If the vehicle has not been in a fire, then the wiring should be intact.
