Accident Reconstruction is the foundation and backbone of Ponderosa Associates.
Our highly experienced technical staff has the knowledge and capability to reconstruct even the most difficult crashes.
Ponderosa has been performing reconstruction since 1974.
Our staff averages about 20 years of experience. Our extensive experience in high level product liability cases allows us to understand a wide variety of issues involved in crashes. We have been an integral part in multi-district, class action and individual cases involving nearly every vehicle manufacturer such as Ford, General Motors, FCA (Fiat-Chrysler), Honda, Toyota, Volkswagen, Nissan, Hyundai-Kia. These cases include litigation regarding Toyota sudden unintended acceleration (SUA), GM ignition failures, crashworthiness, airbag failures, seatbelt failures and many others.
Ponderosa uses state of the art equipment and software tools, including 3D laser scanners, traditional survey equipment, drones, air-bag (CDR) and ECM download tools, HVE, 3D-Studio, PhotoModeler and many others.
We are highly skilled in photo analysis, 3D graphics, simulations and animations. We are experienced in finding the details that matter, presenting our work to a jury, and testifying in deposition and trial.
