Introduction to Forensic Injury Biomechanics
Using real case examples and relying on his nearly 20 years of teaching anatomy and biomechanics at Harvard Medical School and MIT, Dr. Hayes introduces the fundamental scientific and anatomic concepts of forensic injury biomechanics:
- Forensic anatomy,
- Injury scaling,
- Injury risk functions, and
- Tolerance limits for the head, neck and other regions.
Examples are drawn from a variety of anatomic regions and involve motor vehicle accidents; slips, trips and falls; occupational and recreational injuries; child abuse, wrongful death and criminal cases. This seminar is offered without charge to law firms and to local, regional and national meetings of legal organizations and insurance groups.
Injury Biomechanics. Clearly Explained.
Four To 12 Hours
