TOPIC: Investigating Injury Disputes in Motorcycle Crashes Using Biomechanics

Biomechanics is a scientific field that applies engineering and physics principles to the human body and deals with the effects of forces and motion on the body. When a collision occurs between a motorcycle and, for example, another vehicle, the motorcyclist can experience several impacts against that vehicle, the ground, and/or other surfaces, each having the potential to result in injury. In this presentation, Dr. Albert introduces the audience to the field of biomechanics and the scientific process for conducting a biomechanical investigation in the context of personal injury litigation, and applies that scientific process to a case example involving a motorcycle collision.

ABOUT Dr. Carolyne Albert
