Accidents that involve commercial motor vehicles are considerably more complex than accidents that involve only passenger vehicles. A thorough understanding of heavy vehicle dynamics and regulations governing commercial motor vehicles is required in order to properly investigate and reconstruct these collisions.
At Steven W. Rickard and Associates, Inc., we have the specialized experience, skills, and knowledge necessary to properly investigate and reconstruct commercial motor vehicle accidents so that our clients are in the best position to represent the interests of their clients. We take great pride in the relationships we have built with attorneys, insurance carriers, governmental agencies, and commercial carriers across the nation. We provide our clients with an extensive range of services relating to both the investigation and reconstruction of commercial motor vehicle accidents. For detailed information regarding the services we offer, please see our Services page.
In addition to providing reconstruction services, we also give presentations and CLE-approved workshops to our clients that cover topics including working with law enforcement, identifying and preserving roadway and vehicle evidence, obtaining proper photographs and measurements at accident sites and of involved vehicles, downloading of electronic control modules, analyzing driver qualification and trip documents, understanding federal and state regulations, and other post-accident investigation matters. Steven W. Rickard and Associates, Inc. is accredited by the Supreme Court of Pennsylvania's Continuing Legal Education Board as a continuing legal education course provider.
