Written by Prof. John Kwasnoski for prosecutors and law enforcement, with numerous references, checklists, case studies, and other information that will improve the prosecution of motor vehicle crimes, and at an affordable price for your office or personal library.

Chapter 3 Pedestrian Collisions
Chapter 4 Single Vehicle Collisions

A special focus of the text is reference information needed to debunk faux defenses, and suggestions on investigative strategies to counter defense expert assertions and opinions. Numerous case studies from actual cases clarify technical issues in the reconstruction, and explain how an expert report is can be challenged. Predicate question strings, with commentary, help to develop an ear for how collision reconstruction testimony should sound, with an emphasis on helping jurors understand the technical material by using plain language.
“This is an outstanding reference, and it feels like Prof. Kwasnoski is sitting at your side as your personal consultant. His insight and perspective, developed over thirty years working with prosecutors, give you the advantage you need to deal with difficult defense expert witnesses.”
