Truck Accident Project Examples
Truck – Bicycle Accident
Miller Engineering performed a detailed reconstruction of an accident that resulted in a fatality when a bicycle rider and a truck collided. Visibility and timing analyses were performed.
Truck – Pedestrian Accident
Pedestrian was injured by garbage truck operating in reverse. Miller Engineering was retained to reconstruct the accident and provide analysis of the equipment used as well as company practices.
Lift Truck Accident
Client suffered severe bodily injury as a result of a construction accident involving a lift truck. Miller Engineering analyzed the design of bucket and methods of ingress/egress.
Truck Egress / Ingress
A truck driver fell out of a tractor cab, resulting in a significant head injury. Miller Engineering analyzed the fall pattern in combination with the injuries to determine whether the driver was climbing into or out of the cab, using the three point method, etc.
Tractor Trailer – Van Accident
A man was severely injured from an accident between his van and a tractor trailer. Miller Engineering investigated the possible failure mechanisms and helped determine an accident sequence by inspecting the subject vehicles and comparing the trailer towing practices with the applicable standards and regulations.
Semi-Truck Tire Separation
While driving along an interstate, an automobile collided with a runaway tire that came loose from a commercial semi-truck. Miller Engineering reviewed the testimonies, performed a site visit to inspect the subject truck, and concluded that the wheel separation had resulted from improper maintenance and insufficient daily inspection practices.
