Adamson Engineering would like to Introduce to you Kelley Adamson

Kelley S. Adamson, M.E., P.E.


Although Kelley is no longer accepting new cases, he continues to work on his active cases and is very much involved with the mentoring of our team of engineers and reconstructionists.


Kelley holds a Master of Engineering degree and is a licensed professional engineer (P.E.) in the states of Texas, Louisiana, and Mississippi. He has been in the traffic accident investigation and reconstruction field since 1983. He is recognized as an expert in the field of traffic accident reconstruction involving passenger vehicles, commercial vehicles, heavy trucks, motorcycles, bicycles, and pedestrians. As a civil engineer, Kelley is experienced in the field of highway, roadway, and bridge construction, as well as the design of structures, roadways, and bridges. Kelley has been qualified as a civil engineer in design, construction, and maintenance in many courts in Texas and Louisiana and is employed by law firms, government entities, and insurance companies throughout the United States. He is affiliated with the National Society of Automotive Engineers, Texas Society of Professional Engineers, Society of Automotive Engineers, and the National Association of Professional Accident Reconstruction Professionals.


Kelley received his Bachelor of Science degree in civil engineering from Texas A&M University in 1982. He then earned his Master of Engineering in civil engineering from Texas A&M University in 1985. While studying at Texas A&M, he was a graduate research assistant for Texas Transportation Institute and Texas Engineering Extension Service. His research included computer simulation of vehicle accidents and computer modeling of structural components. While at Texas A&M, he participated in several crash tests at Texas Transportation Institute. Prior to his graduation, he worked as an automotive mechanic, construction surveyor, and as an assistant construction superintendent. These hands-on experiences gave Kelley the background and working knowledge of roadway construction, maintenance, and design.


Kelley was first introduced to the field of traffic accident reconstruction in graduate school where he became enthralled with this field that has developed into a lifelong career. He has investigated and reconstructed thousands of collisions and has performed numerous crash tests for litigation and non-litigation purposes. His decades of experience combined with his advanced education make Kelley an asset to litigation teams as well as to the team of reconstructionists he leads on a daily basis.


During his career, Kelley has served on numerous committees in various capacities including the Society of Automotive Engineers Accident Investigation and Reconstruction Practices (AIRP). He also served as chairman on the steering committee for WREX 2000 where various motorcycle crash tests and other vehicle crash tests were performed and then published by SAE. Kelley presented the motorcycle crash tests results at the SAE World Congress in 2002. He presented the vehicle crash tests results at the TAARS Conference. He was involved in crash tests consisting of 20 motorcycles for the 2017 ARC-CSI conference in Las Vegas, Nevada. He has also published multiple articles for Collision magazine.
