Los Angeles, CA


Mr. Landerville has worked in the accident reconstruction field for over 32 years. He has conducted over 6,000 accident reconstructions, including vehicle inspections, site inspections, and advanced computer simulations. Mr. Landerville has developed expertise in several cutting-edge reconstruction techniques, including three-dimensional computer animations and visibility re-enactments. He has testified in numerous trials and has demonstrated expertise in the use of computer simulation and animation to explain complex accident causation elements in a clear and understandable manner. Mr. Landerville earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Mechanical Engineering from California State University, Long Beach, in 1987, with a minor in Applied Mathematics. Upon graduating, he was awarded a full academic scholarship from Hughes Aircraft Company (Howard Hughes Fellowship). He received his Master of Science degree in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Southern California (USC) in 1989. A Registered Professional Engineer (P.E.) in the State of California since 1991, Mr. Landerville also holds certification from the Accreditation Commission for Traffic Accident Reconstruction (ACTAR). Mr. Landerville is a member of several professional groups and honor societies.
