Crash Data Retrieval Australia (CDRA) is currently training retrieval experts at approved Panel shops around Australia to be able to access crash data and sophisticated computer software programs that provide an analysis of the collision severity and forces exchanged between vehicles.
CDRA's retrieval service may include, but is not limited to the following:
"A vehicle owner presented a claim to recover damages his car sustained when it was "damaged while parked and unattended". The Data retrieved with the CDR tool contradicts the owner's account of the loss. The EDR data indicates the vehicle was in motion when it was struck from behind and was accelerated forward. The data also suggests there were multiple occupants in the vehicle at the time of the loss and multiple ignition cycles.
This claim is potentially problematic as there is the possibly of occupants who could potentially file claims for injury. Not only does the CDR verify the loss did not occur as reported, it provides evidence there was another party in the vehicle. In this case the CDR tool has proven valuable in the detection of fraud and in allowing us to better asses our potential exposure.

How Technology is Changing Accident Reconstruction
Despite detailed accident reports, witness accounts and damage photos accident reconstruction can be tricky business. That's where the annual ARC-CSI Crash Conference, held in Las Vegas, comes in. Live, full scale crash tests and technical presentations provide in-depth collision reconstruction and investigation education. Crash Data Retrieval proudly represents CSI In Australia
