Examination of Tyres
A detailed examination of the vehicle tyres is a vital element to any reconstruction process.
The examination will identify defects and excessive or eccentric tread wear. Eccentric wear to the tread can be used to identify pre-existing defects to components such as brakes, suspension and chassis.
In cases of rapid tyre deflation, forensic inspection by a trained examiner as a part of the reconstruction will allow an assessment to be made as to whether rapid deflation occurred prior to, or as a consequence of the accident.
In all cases, conclusions are drawn as to whether and to what extent, tyre defects or failure were contributory factors in the accident.
Key Advantages Include:
- Identification of contributory tyre defects
- Identification of pre-existing mechanical defects causing eccentric tyre wear
- Conclusions to be drawn as to whether rapid tyre deflation was a cause or consequence of the collision
