A Systematic Approach to Crash Analysis.

Xprts LLC is an organization dedicated to the systematic analysis of motor vehicle crashes. We evaluate the Occupant Protection System and vehicle structure as a whole to understand the accident dynamics.

Our team has investigated more than 1500 vehicular crashes including rollover, side and frontal impacts and the effect of crashworthiness on vehicle occupants over the last 15 years. Of those vehicles we have accidents involving heavy trucks, buses, SUV’s, pickups, vans, passenger cars, ATV's, Rhinos, and forklifts under a wide range of impact conditions.


We have accumulated an extensive reference library of data, documents and media.

Our experience in rollover accident analysis led us to develop the Jordan Rollover System (JRS) and an FMVSS 216 test fixture so we can measure roof strength, dynamic forces and evaluate occupant protection systems like seat belts and airbags. Sled tests can be run on seat backs and seats and for rear impacts. Now we have introduced virtual testing capabilities that enable the evaluation of virtually any impact configuration and type.
