Kwasnoski's Little Red Book:
A Primer on Collision

John B. Kwasnoski


A readable foundation text for those who want a primer on collision reconstruction. Patterned after Prof. Kwasnoski's Lethal Weapon lectures, and including additional materials and references. This book is a perfect read for prosecutors and for officers who want to gain a new perspective on the science of collision reconstruction.

"In everyday language, Mr. Kwasnoski thoroughly explains the terminology, principles, and scientific methods used in the field of collision reconstruction. An understanding of these components is critical to the effective presentation of collision reconstruction evidence in the courtroom. This primer is an invaluable resource for prosecutors."

Courtroom Success
"Witness Skills
Training Seminar"

For most officers who work on DWI crash cases they are usually under-trained, if at all, in the skills needed to provide powerful, persuasive testimony at trial. Most cases do not go to trial, so an officer can work on many cases without ever standing the test of being cross examined by a crafty defense attorney working with a competent expert. Then the officer is involved in that high-profile case that receives public scrutiny, and perhaps for the first time the officer's work is critically examined.

Host the WITNESS SKILLS training for your officers; help them be the best that they can be.


Two-day Reconstruction Refresher Course / Special Topics

For officers in departments that do not have a high volume of collisions each year that require collision investigation / reconstruction. This course is intended to give these officers additional experience, and afford an opportunity to refresh their skills and identify some attacks on the prosecution of MV homicide cases, revisit some collision reconstruction topics for updating, and to work on the investigation and collision reconstruction of several real case files.

Accident Reconstruction for Personal Injury Litigators

This seminar is designed for the practitioner who wants to cut through the mathematics and engineering of collision reconstruction to get to the issues that impact the outcomes of these cases. Emphases include the value of early investigation, identification of assumptions made in lieu of evidence, incisive evaluation of the reconstruction expert's report, and development of checklists for case preparation.
