Injury biomechanics is the application of the principles of mechanics to characterize the response of human body to external loads. Biomechanics is often the deciding factor in many personal injury claims, products and premises liability issues, wrongful death, and criminal cases. With multiple years of experience in forensic injury biomechanics, Vollmer-Gray can help investigate the potentially numerous factors surrounding the claim in a timely and professional manner
Experts at Vollmer-Gray use scientific and engineering principles, state of the art testing technology, and 3D modeling and simulation tools to analyze and evaluate injuries resulting from auto collisions, work place accidents, slip/trip falls etc. Based on the available evidence, our engineers recreate the accident to determine the magnitude, direction, and duration of forces involved in an accident. With our combined knowledge of injury biomechanics, human anatomy/physiology, and injury threshold we determine whether or not the forces sustained by the human body during an accident are consistent with the claimed injuries (e.g. mild traumatic brain injury, lumbar disc herniations, ACL tears, shoulder slap tears, etc).
