QUALITY, EXPERIENCE AND VALUE
Rob Newton has conducted multi-disciplinary crash research that enables the whole picture to be seen and how the various elements of a crash fit together; the vehicle movement and damage, the structures and devices of the vehicle and the occupant movement and injury. It is not uncommon to see contradictory evidence as each specialist only reports their own specific findings. Having attributed tens of thousands of injuries to causes and mechanisms within vehicles as part of research work a greater insight in to collision events has been accumulated.
With over 27 years practical experience of investigating vehicle crashes for research and litigation Rob Newton has studied all aspects of road traffic collisions. Scene evaluation, vehicle movement, crashworthiness, crush dynamics, severity assessment, secondary safety performance, intrusion measurement, occupant vehicle interaction, crash trauma, seatbelt examination, occupant injury assessment. Rob Newton Associates are available for instruction of all types of accidents; Road Traffic Collisions, Personal Injury Cases and Health & Safety Investigations.
Data for research projects for industry, government and the European Commission to be analysed for safety critical design or strategic policy needs to be accurate, consistent and systematic in it’s coding and methodology.
EXPERT OPINION FOR LITIGATION
Rob Newton Associates are available to give expert opinion on all aspects of collision and personal injury cases with specialisation in vehicle occupant kinematics, forensic biomechanics and seatbelt witness marks. Desktop reports can be undertaken as well as full in-depth investigations of scenes, vehicles and casualties. We are available to act on behalf of individual clients or as a Single Joint experts.
Systematic examination of a vehicle interior can reveal much about what occurred during the final few milliseconds of a crash. With in-depth knowledge of what happens in most common instances it enables the investigator to predict injury outcomes. Thorough assessment of vehicle to occupant interaction will enable assessment of seatbelt use, probable seat position for occupants and much more.
With an in-depth knowledge of the causes of injury from various impact scenarios it is possible to interpolate likely injury outcomes from the type and severity of an impact.
