Accident Investigations 2015-06-29T18:43:56+00:00

Our findings, charts, and graphs will not fall apart under examination. We work hard to analyze both sides of every issue and present facts objectively. We respect the law and are careful to avoid making legal conclusions. In today’s litigious climate, we work hard to settle disputes before litigation occurs, using proven engineering principals gained through many years in the trenches.

Here is my personal promise to you on every accident investigation

“I will focus on cutting through the rhetoric to identify the cause with corresponding procedure or system that would have corrected the issue.  After investigating over 200 cases from all sides (owner, architect, defense, plaintiff, construction company, and so forth) I instinctively understand the areas opposing counsel is going to scrutinize and the questions they’re most likely to ask.”

So in every accident investigation I do more than extensive research and reporting, but I proactively answer the questions you’ll face.

Ruling was favorable and a trust was established for the family of the deceased.

Maloney v. New York City Transit

New York, NY

Gogulski & Associates testified in court regarding an accident which occurred when a pedestrian fell through an unprotected subway grating on a sidewalk. Ruling was favorable.

Bickel v. Mud Creek Golf Course

Almodor vs Dencoet al

White Sands Test Facility New Mexico

Defended the backhoe operator and his employer and provided testimony that proved a known hazard existed in a fatal backhoe accident. In this case, OSHA standards of care were ignored by personnel trained to prevent accidents. This was a 3rd party liability case involving citations issued to three separate parties who were at the scene of the accident, but had no contractual responsibility.

Rub v. Kirk

Chicago, IL

As the plaintiff’s expert witness, Gogulski & Associates provided testimony that proved the general contractor was negligent in standards of care which could have prevented two framers from falling while working on the roof of a residential project.
