Experts in Accident Analysis and Injury Causation
Pittsburgh Biomechanics, LLC is an engineering consulting firm that provides clients with knowledge and expertise in cases involving human injury as a result of an accident. We specialize in biomechanical analysis and accident reconstruction, using engineering and biomedical sciences to explore the cause, nature, and severity of bodily injuries.
Pittsburgh Biomechanics was founded in 2008 by Kevin K. Toosi, MD, PhD who practiced medicine as a primary care physician from 1994 until 2000 before obtaining his BS, MS and PhD in Bioengineering at the University of Pittsburgh. Dr. Toosi has more than twenty years of experience in clinical medicine, medical research, injury biomechanics, and accident causation.
Providing clients with biomechanical investigation, including basic technical background of accident related cases, we specialize in high and low speed motor vehicle collisions, slip and fall events, occupational injuries, and injuries sustained during recreational activities (motorcycle, bicycle, boat, ATV, etc.). Our engineers help clients understand the benefits of biomechanical analysis and accident reconstruction in a wide range of accident scenarios.
Our methods use biomechanical reconstruction to determine the mechanism of injury and forces involved. Our data tolerances and knowledge of forces and loads allow us to verify if a claimed injury is consistent with the accident that occurred. Our team of engineers and scientists has been depended upon on numerous occasions to provide expert witness testimony during litigation proceedings to support our conclusions.
Members of the Pittsburgh Biomechanics team have authored, coauthored, and internally funded several journal articles, abstracts and proceedings papers in the areas of injury biomechanics and injury causation, solidifying our position as a leading authority in the biomechanical accident reconstruction field.
