Accident Surveys performed under the direct supervision of a licensed surveyor are used in court and for the land surveyor to provide expert testimony. The mapping can help to reenact the accident step by step or simply provide the visual layout of the accident scene along with the pertinent evidence shown to help build the strongest case. Whether a motor vehicle accident or personal injury on private property, survey data is collected to show detailed information that is specific to the incident.
Here are some of the items that may be shown:
- Elevations of roadways, sidewalks, curbs, low spots, drainage patterns.
- Location of utility poles, traffic signs, buildings, etc.
- Position of vehicles, lines of sight, obstructions.
