Biomechanics & Personal Injury

Our team determines how and why people become injured. Our assessments focus on how the body generates and responds to forces, applying the concepts of mechanical engineering, physiology, anatomy, and physics to any instance of injury. Whether it is a question of restraint use, helmet effectiveness, the mechanics of a fall, or injury causation in low-speed collisions, our team has you covered. Our team consists of scientists and engineers with a true depth of expertise brought about through decades of forensic investigation into injury causation, along with a breadth of research experience in the science of injury causation and the biomechanics of human movement. Our experts have been qualified in arbitrations, Licence Appeal Tribunal (LAT) hearings, as well as civil and criminal courts.
