We provide an accident investigation service for insurance companies and solicitors principally by obtaining statements from drivers, passengers, and witnesses.

The statements are submitted, with typed copies, in the appropriate format depending whether the case is to appear in Civil or Criminal Courts.

We submit 4 copies of our text Locus Report that describes the scene, together with computer drawn plans (not to scale) that illustrate the scene together with measurements. Suitable photographs of the scene that illustrate the views of driver's involved, the views of witnesses, together with overall views of the accident scene, are also included.
