Spectrum Consultants Group has been providing accident reconstruction services to its clients since 1984. Our experts have more than 200 years of combined traffic accident and collision analysis experience. We have investigated, analyzed, and reconstructed thousands of motor vehicle collisions and presented our findings in judicial systems throughout the country.

Spectrum enjoys an outstanding reputation for our accident reconstruction services. Though our main operations are based in the mid-Atlantic, we provide our services throughout the United States. We are one of the rare groups in the United States able to image any type of heavy vehicle engine, including Volvo/Mack.

Our book, Commercial Vehicle Accident Investigation and Reconstruction, was originally published in 2003 and had its second edition released in 2011. The third edition is currently in-progress. Reconstructing commercial vehicle accidents is a complex subject. Our textbook aims to serve as a valuable tool in assisting those interested in investigating commercial vehicle accidents.

Please see below for an overview of the services we offer. If you feel we can be of service to you, please do not hesitate to get in touch.
