Job Hazard Analysis

Our Engineering expert is a bioengineer (U.C. Berkeley) with expertise, experience, and a course of study of the complex interaction between outside forces on the human body and its systems and the nature, type, and characteristic injuries associated with the forces. In motor vehicle collision cases, our experts examine radiology images, medical records, coroner/autopsy reports, photographs and measurements, and surveys of the vehicles. Armed with this information, he determines what forces were applied to the vehicles and the bodies to provide to the medical experts who can evaluate whether the resulting injuries are consistent with the type and direction of forces applied. Engineering experts can also shed light on the directional path of a pedestrian moments before an impact based on the nature of the injuries and the focal nature of the impact.
