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. The NSC Collision Preventability Review provides a detailed final determination on the preventability of a collision for work-related fleet motor vehicle incidents. NSC provides a full report that can save you thousands in legal and arbitration fees and is 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.

Coming Soon: The Collision Preventability Portal

The NSC Collision Preventability Portal, scheduled for launch in October 2021, will streamline the preventability review process for both employers (customers) and NSC expert investigators. The customer simply completes an online request form and uploads incident-related photos, videos, police reports, witness statements, company policies and any other relevant material directly to the portal. A reviewer is assigned to the case and, after thorough review, develops a final report. For more information, email [email protected].
