    for a time of settling circumstances and reasons of accident

    Hello everybody!

    Accident scene shall be secured for a time of settling circumstances and reasons of accident in such manner:

    I would like to make sure that I understand "for a time of settling circumstances and reasons of accident" correctly.

    In my opinion, "for a time of settling circumstances and reasons of accident" means "for the duration of settling circumstances and reasons of accident" or "for as long as circumstances and reasons of accident are (being) settled".

    Thank you. The sentence is taken from a procedure about accidents.

    None of these manual entries are in good English, so it's partly a guess from us too.
    It seems to mean that the scene will be secured until all the necessary investigations that require an intact accident scene are completed.
