Forensic Expert

Bradley Cook, P.E., MSE

Bio-Medical / Mechanical Engineer

Bradley is a professional engineer specializing in forensic evaluations involving vehicle accident investigation and reconstruction, industrial and construction workplace accidents, premise liability, and product safety. His formal training in mechanical and bio-medical engineering gives him dual expertise to investigate accidents and the resulting injuries.

Bradley has performed engineering analyses for hundreds of vehicle accident reconstructions including automobiles, motorcycles, pedestrians, bicycles, and heavy commercial vehicles. The cases typically include vehicle and accident scene inspections, collecting crash data retrieval (CDR) or heavy vehicle data, traffic control analysis, performing accident reconstruction analysis, creating a computerized accident reconstruction, preparing expert witness reports for submission in court, and providing deposition and trial testimony.
