Vehicle Technology Areas

Here are selected examples for some of the various types of vehicles, equipment, systems, maintenance, and product liability that I have worked with in addition to a wide range of golf carts, LSV – Low Speed Vehicles, cars, police cars, light trucks, box trucks, and tractor trailers.

 

  • Bicycles – Adult and Children’s
  • Mobility Scooters
  • Powered Wheelchairs
  • Mopeds
  • Motor Scooters
  • Motorcycles – Dirt, Cruiser, Sport, Fast, & Children’s
  • Skateboards
  • Mobility Carts
  • Forklifts
  • Hand Trucks – manual and powered
  • Skid Steer Loaders “Bobcats”
  • Hydraulic Excavators
  • Small Engines
  • Go Karts Technical
  • Go Kart Accidents
  • Large Earthmoving Equipment
  • Large Diesel Engines – Marine
  • Large Diesel Engines – Fixed
  • Large Diesel Engines – Mobile
  • Large Diesel Engines – Maintenance
  • Gas and Diesel Gensets
  • Gas and Diesel Engine Fires
  • Equipment Overhaul
  • Vehicle Repair
  • Auto Body Repair
  • Full Body Sectioning
  • Unintended Acceleration
  • Brake Failure – air and hydraulic
  • Tire Failure – auto and truck
  • Tire Overloading
  • Hydroplaning
  • Dump Truck Suspension Failure
  • Tractor Trailer Suspension Failure
  • Tractor Trailer Suspension Overhaul
  • Dump Trailer Topple (falls over)
  • Steering Lockup – car and truck
  • Suspension Failure
  • DOT Regulations
  • Airboat Mechanical Failures
  • Golf Carts
  • Golf Cart Accidents
  • Neighborhood Electric Vehicles (NEV’s)
  • Pickup Trucks & Trailer Combinations
  • Pickup Trucks & Trailers Overloaded
  • Utility Trailers
  • Utility Trailers – disconnecting from tow vehicle
  • Utility Vehicles
  • Car and Truck Electrical Systems & Lighting
  • Truck and Trailer Retroreflective Devices
  • Seat Belts
  • Airbags
  • Occupant Restraint Systems
  • Diesel Engine Failures
  • Lamp Filament Analysis
  • Low Speed Rear Impact Analysis
  • Wheel Loss — Steel and Aluminum
  • Lug Nut Technology

There are a substantial number of vehicle systems listed.  The point of this list is to provide a general and broad range of technologies.  If you read through this list once or twice, and you have an accident file that you are attempting to resolve, keep in mind that complex accidents typically require a team of experts.

Furthermore, with a “complex event” you may need preliminary assistance to determine who to contact or add to your team of experts.  Two examples of  “complex events” would include rollover & roof crush and rear impact & seat failure.

Takata Recall Affects 46 Million Vehicles in U.S.

Takata's airbag recall affects over 46 million U.S. vehicles. As of June 2017 65% HAVE NOT been replaced. (Reuters)

If unable to promptly get a replacement and worried about what could happen in a crash, then you can request from NHTSA to install an airbag On-Off Switch. Here is the NHTSA link: http://www.safercar.gov/Vehicle+Shoppers/Air+Bags/ON-OFF+Switch+Requests

Airbag Recall Technology

Airbag Recall Technology

When the inflator assembly is activated, sodium azide produces nitrogen gas which flows through the filter screen and into the airbag. Time between crash detection and complete airbag deployment is approximately 0.05 seconds. Typical airbag deployment speed is 200 mph. If the inflator assembly is structurally defective the inflator assembly can explode,

GM Ignition Switch Defect

GM Ignition Switch Turns OFF

A fundamental problem with the design of this ignition switch assembly in that the key can easily rotate to the ACCESSORY position which turns off the engine.

Turning off the engine affects vehicle controllability and turns off the airbag systems.
