Let NSC Decide if the Crash Was Preventable

Collision Preventability Review

If someone in your organization has been involved in a work-related motor vehicle crash, an independent, expert review of the crash could help prevent future incidents.

In an NSC collision preventability review, an incident investigation expert assigned by NSC will review your request and all supporting documentation, then independently determine if the crash was preventable. NSC provides a full report that can save you thousands in legal and arbitration fees. It’s also a valuable educational tool to help your drivers avoid similar crashes in the future.

The preventability review is open to NSC customers with motor vehicles operating in the United States and Canada. Results from the preventability review are based on self-reported documentation submitted by the participant.

To begin, your company must complete the Preventability Review Request Form, then email it to [email protected]. NSC will quickly contact you for supporting documentation. Within 30 days of receiving all supporting documentation, the Collision Preventability Review Committee will provide an impartial ruling with a full report on the preventability of the crash. 

Please review the complete Preventability Review Guidelines before submitting your assessment request.
