“I have a significant amount of experience working on numerous types of forensic and related cases. My background in training, education and experience gives me that needed X-factor for analyzing the case and testifying later in court. I hate to bring up the fact that I was a Marine, but I do fight for the case,” says Dan Wall, of Wall Accident Reconstruction, Inc. in Mesa. Wall’s firm conducts expert witness services in the field of accident reconstruction, product liability and biomechanics. He has appeared as an expert witness in court in civil and criminal cases for the plaintiff and defense. He stays up-to-date on his areas of expertise and has qualified numerous times in all of the areas in which he testifies. The scope of his business is international. “Once I went to Puer to Rico for a Honda product liability case,” he says. “The roads there are great, but the drivers are wild. I have done heavy truck under ride guard cases that were complex and interesting to work on too.” “I enjoy doing all types of motor vehicle collisions whether they are minor, lowspeed, rear-end collisions or complex, high-speed, multi-vehicle collisions. I enjoy cases where I do both accident reconstruction and biomechanics. I also enjoy motorcycle cases, since I ride a motorcycle,” Wall says. Wall gained experience and training in analysis, investigation and troubleshooting of aircraft in the aircraft maintenance field while serving in the U.S. Marine Corps from 1972 to 1975. He joined the Air Force Reserve in 1975, serving in a civil engineering capacity. The experience with civil engineering would later become useful in accident reconstruction issues. He retired from the Air Force as an officer in 1994. He worked as an engineer for the aerospace giant, Martin Marietta Aerospace, from 1980 to 1987 and was involved in engineering design, test and analysis of aerospace related projects. As a senior engineer, he received invaluable knowledge and experience, which he later transferred to the accident reconstruction field. One of the projects at Martin Marietta was the Man Maneuvering Unit, a project for which he received special recognition. “Expert witness testimony was part of the job and I enjoyed it,” he says. Wall began working for Cromack Engineering Associates, Inc. in 1987 as an associate engineer. CEA, Inc. served national and international clients in the accident reconstruction, product liability and biomechanical industry. Wall purchased the business and renamed the company as Wall Accident Reconstruction, Inc. and has been doing business on his own since 1996. “Becoming an expert witness is not easy and requires significant skills and expertise. I suggest that attorneys hire an expert who is qualified in the areas of their expertise and is capable of investigating and analyzing the facts in the case. The work is not for everybody. You need to be able to keep your composure and wits during high stress environments as encountered during depositions and trial testimony,” Wall says. Wall leads an active personal life. He is currently a member of the Coast Guard Auxiliary, where he volunteers as a public boat safety instructor. He also helps patrol the waterways. He is a licensed private investigator in the state of Arizona. He has significant experience riding motorcycles and currently rides a Harley Davidson Ultra Classic touring model. He also enjoys riding dirt bikes, ATVs and bicycles. Wall took a college class for EMTs just for the experience and training and discovered a deeper interest. Today, he is a nationally certified EMT.
