Biomedical Engineering Analysis
Read More
Biomedical engineering analysis is essential to injury investigation for accidents in the areas of transportation, falls, machinery and tools. Our forensic professionals are prepared to determine how the human body is affected by different forces or torques involved in a particular setting from a biomechanical perspective. This is based on the collective understanding of how the anatomic elements of a human body such as bones, ligaments, tendons, organs, blood vessels and nerves withstand various mechanical loadings. Investigations include:
  • Occupant Kinematics
  • Injury Mechanism
  • Tolerance
  • Vehicle Restraints
  • Gait Analysis

Drone Aerial Photography & Videography
Read More
Forensic Engineering Technologies utilizes advanced UAS drones and media processing software to capture high-definition aerial photographs and videos of inspection sites, vehicles, and objects. Drones provide accurate and detailed images/videos, at a price point that is far more practical than traditional aerial photographers using full-sized aircraft. Additionally, drones have the capability of capturing images and videos that cannot be obtained by any other type of aerial platform, including helicopters. Our pilot is licensed and fully complies with the 14 CFR Part 107 rule for commercial sUAS operations.

High Definition 3D Scanning & Imaging
Read More
Forensic Engineering Technologies utilized the latest in High Definition 3D laser scanning for detailed measurement and evidence documentation. The HD 3D scanner produces incredibly detailed three-dimensional images of complex environments, geometries and physical evidence. These images contains millions of data points which enables us to create precise drawings for analysis and presentations. The benefit is a more thorough, accurate and detailed documentation of the evidence. Using the scanned data, we can:
  • Create 3D diagrams from incident sites
  • Create 3D printed models of vehicles and objects
  • Create detailed vehicle crush diagrams
  • Preserve site evidence
Human Factors Analysis
Read More
Human factors is a field examining human capabilities in the context of the environment, and provides a comprehensive view of all elements (the driver, the vehicle, and the roadway environment) involved in an accident. Human factors analyses examine how individuals detect, identify, decide, and respond to scenarios. This comprehensive approach allows our forensic professionals to understand the interaction between the driver, the vehicle, and the roadway environment. Our forensic professionals are trained in the evaluation of human performance in pedestrian, bicycle, automobile, and commercial motor vehicle operations, and apply these skills to forensic evaluations. We perform human factors investigations and assessments of issues including:
  • Driver behavior and performance
  • Driver decision making
  • Driver training
  • Fatigue
  • Sight line visibility
  • Reaction time to roadway events
  • Visibility and legibility under different lighting and weather conditions
Premises Liability
Read More
For slip and fall, trip and fall, and other premises safety concerns, our forensic professionals are prepared to determine the facts so you can make an accurate assessment of what occurred. Our experienced engineers understand what the applicable codes and standards require. We have assessed stairs, walkways, handrails, doors, ramps, parking lots, lighting, and painting for compliance. We also are certified to assess the slip resistance of surfaces under wet and dry conditions. Premises liability cases require analysis of:
  • Slip resistance
  • Codes and standards
  • ADA compliance
  • Maintenance issues

Scientific Animations & Diagrams
Read More
Our forensic and engineering experts work closely with our animators to create high-quality scientific animations that accurately illustrate how an event occurred. Our experts have successfully used animations in jury trials and have provided them to counsel for use in mediation. Three-dimensional scientific animation is a highly effective communication tool when describing complicated events. Illustrating precisely what occurred in an accident is often more persuasive and educational than a verbal explanation of the events.
  • Motor vehicle crash and product liability cases especially benefit from visual presentations
  • Animations are cost effective
  • Animations accurately illustrate complicated events
