Las Vegas Home of Crash Testing

Posted by: Jack Bernstein

Many people do not realize that, among its other claims to fame, Las Vegas is the home of the ARC-CSI Crash Conference held at the Las Vegas Motor Speedway. This important crash testing has been held for the past 12 years and has been valuable in gaining insight into how various crash scenarios take place.

Crash Testing For Dummies

Most people are familiar with the “dummy” crash testing protocol used by agencies such as the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration to test new vehicles. In fact, most of that information is now available when you purchase a car, designated in “stars” such as a “5-star safety rating.” Commercials showing the crash dummies used in these tests being put into front-end crash scenarios and through other tests have become familiar to most of us.

However, the NHTSA is not the only organization that conducts crash tests. In Las Vegas, the ARC-CSI Crash Conference allows attendees the chance to measure raw crash data and to hear subject matter experts speak on various crash issues.

Crash Reconstruction Experts Help Victims

The ARC-CSI is a group that is organized for professional crash reconstruction experts. This organization sets standards for those who are interested in pursuing a career in the crash reconstruction field, and helps them attain the knowledge and skills they need through conferences such as the Crash Conference.

Accident reconstruction experts use their knowledge and expertise to help victims when they are injured in car crashes. In some cases, it is difficult to know exactly what happened prior to a crash, so the attorney representing the victim may request that an accident reconstruction expert look over the scene and use scientific data to determine what really happened. In some cases, accident reconstruction experts have been able to help victims secure much larger settlements or jury awards by showing that the victim was not at fault, that the other driver was speeding or driving recklessly or some other factor that changes the outlook of the case.
