At times a critical element to a crash investigation relates to whether a mechanical failure or defect contributed to the cause of a crash. Inspections of the engine, brakes, suspension, electronics, fuel system, throttle, exhaust system, tires, linkages, hydraulics, transmission, wiring or other components may be necessary. All Introtech reconstructionists have mechanical training and expertise, but when necessary we include our top mechanical specialist, James Drozdowski. His expertise extends to suspension and braking components, fire cause and origin, engine and transmission, throttle and sudden acceleration analysis, exhaust systems, reading and interpreting fault codes through the vehicle’s DLC access, steering components and electrical systems.
Our staff is not afraid to get their hands dirty. When a mechanical failure is in question, the Introtech staff will complete the required inspection and apply the results to our standard reconstruction process. As vehicles are becoming more complex with advanced mechanical systems, a proper full crash reconstruction should include a consideration as to whether mechanical failures contributed to the cause of a crash.
In addition to Mr. Drozdowski, our staff has expertise in the following:
- Henry Lipian is a highly qualified boat mechanic as well as an expert in diesel engines and hydraulics.
- Choya Hawn is a skilled motorcycle mechanic including transmissions and brake systems
- Our entire staff has specialized training in tires/wheel safety issues as well as hydroplaning probability
