Reconstruction of motorcycle accidents is highly unique and requires specialized knowledge.
Typical accident reconstruction programs, such as CRASH and SMAC cannot be utilized with accuracy for vehicle accidents involving motorcycles due to the inequity in mass between the vehicles. When a motorcycle and automobile collide, the mass of the motorcycle will have little effect on the velocity of the car or truck.
Reconstruction of a motorcycle accident is best performed by investigating the motorcycle accident scene for evidence, such as skid marks, gouges and fluids, then applying advanced knowledge of motorcycle operation and sliding factors to calculate velocities of the bike and rider at impact.
Dr. Lloyd has undertaken extensive training in accident reconstruction, motorcycle crash investigation and motorcycle accident analysis.
