Vehicle Restraint System Examinations
Detailed examination of the vehicle restraint systems (Seat belts and airbags) to identify evidence of seat belt usage.
Post impact movement of the vehicle occupants will be in a direction relative to the principal direction of force (PDOF) associated with the impact. This information can then allow a correlation to be made between vehicle- interior contact marks and occupant injury. This is also applied where the seating position of occupants is in dispute.
Key Advantages Include:
- Evidence of seat belt usage
- Forensic evidence to support or refute injury claims
- Identification of the positions of occupants within the vehicle
