This presentation focuses on forensic injury biomechanics.
First, a simple view of biomechanics, injury causation, and injury mechanisms is provided. Then the differences between a biomechanist and a medical doctor are described. Finally, case studies from auto collisions, slip and fall incidents, and others will be discussed.
