According to statistics, road transportation is the most dangerous means of transportation and also the costliest in terms of human lives and material damage. The increase of road safety is a priority goal of the European Commission and an area of high interest for Romania, which is unfortunately placed very high in the hierarchy of countries with a high number of deaths resulting from road accidents. This study presents the mechanisms of the generation of traumatic injuries and also analyses the manner of interpreting these mechanisms in the case of road accidents, both from the perspective of law enforcement and from the perspective of specialists in road transportation, who analyse and investigate road accidents from a technical point of view. Determining the lesional mechanisms helps to better understand the real image of the conditions of an accident’s occurrence, in order to clearly illustrate the elements mentioned in the forensic accident site report and to complement all other means to gather information at that site.
