Throughout the case, Forensic Animators Toby Terpstra and Tomas Owens analyzed the witness statements, scanned the scene in order to preform camera matches and also recorded speeds of general ski traffic through the accident scene using a radar gun. Toby Terpstra also skied the accident scene several times to get a better understanding of the rate of speed. In addition, Tomas Owens analyzed the young experienced skiers’ YouTube channel where he had several videos of himself skiing and preforming different maneuvers including 360 degree spins. Taking into account the physical evidence, witness statements, radar gun readings and YouTube videos, our team was able to create several animations from different perspectives, which were grounded in physics.
The case resulted in a favorable settlement for the client. More information can be found at our clients’ website, www.colowyolawyer.com.
