Who we are:

With 40 years of automotive and truck experience, the Master Mechanics and Technicians of Investigative Mechanics watched as the complexity of vehicle design increased steadily over the years. In 1985, they took their knowledge of the multi-layered automotive industry and applied it to investigating a broad range of vehicular, agricultural, and industrial accidents. Established in 1985, Investigative Mechanics, Inc. is an investigation/research firm specializing in fire, accidents, and mechanical evaluation involving passenger vehicles, on-road trucking, farm machinery, forestry equipment, yachts, snowmobiles, motorcycles, and construction equipment.

What we do:

Accomplished in reconstruction of accident scenes involving multiple vehicle collisions, we have branched out into using scientific methods and the experience of many such cases to thoroughly investigate the facts of a case and determine:

    a. the root cause of the incident,
    b. the true sequence of events involved, and
    c. whether Product Liability is in truth the real issue involved.

Our areas of expertise include:

  • Cause and Origin of Fire investigation
  • Spolation of evidence research
  • Investigation protocols
  • Case review & consultation
  • Recall and Technical Service Bulletin research
  • Reconstruction of fire incident - accident
  • Analysis of opposing reports & testimony
  • Forensic Animation
  • Search/obtain exemplar vehicles for comparision/testing
  • Trial exhibits - models, timelines, graphics & animation
