A Toyota Camry T-boned a Ford Expedition van and tipped it over. The van slid approximately 40 feet on its side. I cannot seem to find a coefficient of friction for steel on asphalt that would allow me to do even a rudimentary calculation of the van's speed at the beginning of the slide. Help.

Most any tort lawyer will have available expert witnesses who can provide the opinions you need.
