Biomechanics expert witness candidates typically have experience in mechanical engineering and/or biomechanical engineering. In a high-profile case, or litigation involving a significant financial stake, the lead attorney may request a biomechanical engineer with prior expert witness testimony experience.
A branch of biophysics, biomechanics combines the prefix bio (“life”) and mechanics, which is the study of the actions of forces. The discipline includes both the internal forces produced by muscles and the external forces that act on the body. A biomechanics expert could provide expertise in intellectual property matters, such as a patent litigation or a trade secret dispute, or a proceeding in the International Trade Commission (ITC). A biomechanical engineering expert could also be called in for a vehicle collision accident reconstruction, product liability, personal injury causation, or failure analysis project. Litigation support could include biomechanical analyses, expert report preparation, forensic engineering, expert opinion, and expert testimony in the courtroom. In addition, clients may seek a biomechanics professional for pre-litigation consulting services.

This expert has significant experience industry as well as consulting experience in product design, manufacturing and safety-related issues and the applicable standards for a wide variety of products and applications. This expert's experience with Industrial accidents in particular, includes machine guarding, rotating machinery, pinch-points, forklifts, explosions and OSHA/MESHA issues. This expert is well published, is a frequent presenter at industry conferences, and holds a machine guarding patent with another application pending.
This expert is an Associate and scientific consultant, providing opinions and expert witness services on matters involving medical devices, medical equipment, and medical procedures. This expert is a biomedical engineer with many years of experience in academia and the medical device industry. This expert obtained an Aerospace Engineering degree followed by Engineering Mechanics Master of Science degree as well as a Ph.D. in Biomedical Engineering, specializing in biomechanics. This expert has been involved in the research and design of implantable medical products and surgical instruments and tools (extensively utilized computational methods for failure analysis and drafting applications such as SolidWorks), the management of pre-clinical studies, and worked along numerous surgeons conducting experimental surgeries for research and product development. This expert serves on The International Technical Committee in The Medical and Surgical Materials and Devices field.
This expert brings to the table many years of experience as the principle investigator of a highly successful forensic consultancy specializing in the fields of Human Factors, Safety Engineering, Industrial Engineering. This expert holds a Bachelor of Science degree in Engineering (Mechanical), a Master's Degree in Safety, and a PhD in Industrial Engineering. This expert also serves as adjunct associate professor in a Systems and Industrial Engineering Department in a College of Engineering.
Throughout the years, this expert has been retained to investigate systems for probable potential incident causes due to oversights or mistakes due to design, manufacture, construction and/or maintenance of a product or premise. Using forensic methods coupled with the principles and practices for human factors/ergonomics, systems engineering, industrial engineering, and safety engineering to analyze incidents, these investigations are intended to result in recommendations for modifications of the existing system to reduce the probability of future occurrences. This expert's investigations generally include looking at human performance characteristics and the interaction with the other system components: other humans, the technology, the environment, and the interfaces that are intended to facilitate the interactions. The various human performance characteristics can include 1) the physical (anthropometry, kinematics, strength, joint range of motion), 2) physiological (the sensory systems, performance capacity), 3) psychological (decision making, risk identification, assessment, and aversion, perception, expectations, information processing, communications), and 4) biomechanics (injury causation, forces applied to the body, forces applied by the body).
This expert has served as an expert witness in hundreds of litigated matters. This expert's unique educational and experiential background, combined with meticulous attention to detail provide clients with exceptionally high-quality reports, qualified expert testimony, and effective technical case management.
