Crash Data Retrieval

“Black Box” Download Services

MDA provides “black box” downloads for passenger vehicles and “ECM” downloads for commercial vehicles across North America

The black box is a device installed in some automobiles which records information related to vehicle crashes or accidents. The original intent of the installation of this device was to record the information which leads to the deployment decision of the air bag supplemental restraint systems. Information from these devices can be collected after a crash and analyzed to to determine what a vehicle was doing during, before and after a crash or event.

The data from the deployment event has proven to be highly useful to accident reconstructions as it provides very detailed information regarding:

  • Vehicle speed at impact
  • Magnitude of impact
  • Seat belt usage

This important information reveals the reality of the crash data and must be retrieved on all important cases. MDA experts are equipped to download data from all vehicles that are “black box” equipped.

Additionally, MDA have the necessary training in crash data retrieval to interpret the download data reports and advise you accordingly.

Getting Started

To begin working with us is as simple as meeting with you in person or by phone to determine the issues you wish us to technically address, and agreeing on the deadlines and other time constraints imposed by the situation. We will then request from you all the relevant background material and documentation required to fully understand the case. Once we have fully reviewed the case file, we will report to you the results of our preliminary findings and provide input on the necessity of obtaining other information and data.

Our Reconstruction Reports

The reports you receive from our experts will be complete, succinct, relevant and in keeping with our original mandate to you. All assumptions will be explained and supported with technical literature. All calculations will be explained and provide a realistic range of values, based on the quality of input data. For example, we do not provide impact speed results with numbers to the right of the decimal point. However, we do not provide such a broad range as to render the results useless for your purposes. We will provide technical conclusions which are supportable and verifiable in any court. We do not shoot from the hip.

What can MDA professionals do to assist you?

MDA professionals will assist you in identifying the issues at hand and making appropriate suggestions for the technical analysis. We will also report to you regularly in whatever format you request.

MDA professionals can use other MDA experts within the organization to address specialized issues or perform tasks which require a particular expertise. Call us anytime to receive professional advice.
