Welcome to the world of Future Forensics™. 

The unique automotive collision damage investigation service 

FUTURE FORENSICS was founded in 1997 by Mark Olson.  After being on all sides of the collision repair industry including insurance, repair, and education, it became obvious that a clearer understanding of how cars are damaged in collisions and how to document that damage was becoming more important to all parties involved.

FUTURE FORENSICS specializes in individual case-by-case Forensic investigations, Vehicle Valuation, Diminished Value evaluations, expert witness testimony and educational seminars dedicated to the Truth in collision damage.

Did you ever wonder…

  • Why do some vehicles show a lot of damage and some only show minimal damage in the same type of impact?
  • Can the final repair bill tell you a better story of collision damage than the original estimate?
  • Could the body shop help with telling a more complete story about the collision damage?
  • Why is the original estimate normally less than the actual cost to repair a vehicle?
  • Is there a different approach to finding the actual cost to repair?
  • Do some vehicles “hide” collision damage?
  • Is there a way that the real and true damage could be documented and explained in a way that could be understood by the average person?
