About A Spectrum Consultant Group

Spectrum Consultants Group currently offers a full line of services in all areas of accident investigation and reconstruction.

Our quick response group, comprised of more than thirty associates located throughout the United States, is designed to get an expert on-scene while a commercial vehicle accident is still fresh. Once we receive the call, we can normally have personnel on scene within a short time.  This is a 24-hour service. The response time is usually less than three hours for clients under agreement and within our coverage area.

NOTE: We are always looking to enhance this program by bringing on new talent. If you are interested and you have the credentials for the investigation or reconstruction of heavy truck, we would like to hear from you.

If you are an in the trucking industry, an insurance agent, a prosecutor, or defense attorney, and need someone to assist you with a crash, we have the staff available to assist (even for review of other experts' reports).

We image Event Data Records/Engine Control Modules (EDR/ECM's) on passenger vehicles and heavy trucks.

We have personnel on staff that can handle most any type of motor vehicle crash. We can conduct wheel loss case analysis, design video animations, run nighttime visibility/conspicuity studies, reconstruct auto, pedestrian, and motorcycle accidents, study occupant kinematics, perform vehicle inspections/examinations, investigate insurance fraud cases, do lamp and air brake examinations, undertake construction zone crashes, and more.  Please review our brochure for a more detailed explanation of our services.

The three most unique areas we handle are:

(1) Emergency vehicle response — police, fire, and ambulance. These accidents go beyond typical speed, time and distance analysis, involving in particular emergency lighting (does it meet the standards) and driver behavior and response.

(2) Wheel failure analysis. It's simple to determine if a wheel is over-torqued. It is more difficult to conclude that it is under-torqued.  There are many causes that lead to under-torquing, and it may not be your client's responsibility.  

(3) Conspicuity. This is also very complex. Studying a pedestrian, truck-tractor or other hazard while sitting in a car under nighttime conditions may not really explain what caused the event.  We consider that these issues are usually not researched enough and are presented with only partial knowledge of the facts. 

We handle all types of vehicle collisions. In addition we have the capability to complete a thorough examination of automobile and heavy truck components, including hydraulic and air brakes. We have inspectors and mechanics that are available to assist our staff with mechanical failures, or in some cases human factors that may have contributed to the incident. 

Our founder is the co-author of Commercial Vehicle Accident Investigation & Reconstruction, a textbook published by Lawyers & Judges Publishing Company.

Our sister organization (CLEE) provides a full line of training programs that are tailored to your specific needs as an insurance personnel or attorney.  We also offer full-length courses for the law-enforcement community. These courses are offered in association with Mount Aloysius College and CEUs are awarded for these programs.

Our goal is to provide quality service to our clients along with a complete and fair analysis of the events that took place.
