Hannon Biomechanics Analysis is a Phoenix area based Arizona Corporation, providing consulting services and expert witness testimony in:

  • detailed biomechanics
  • forensics
  • functional human anatomy
  • neurosciences
  • human factors
  • biological and medical simulations
  • medical analyses

When required, autopsies are also performed by this office.

Our civil litigation casework includes over 2000 cases over 22 years including cases involving passenger motor vehicle accidents, large commercial truck accidents, pedestrian injuries, industrial injuries, human falls, surgical implant failures and sports and recreational injuries.

Criminal forensics cases addressed include wrongful death, child abuse, shootings, beatings and vehicular homicide. Computer modeling of the human body in auto accidents is performed when required in a cost effective manner (both simulations and videos).

Our core expertise is injury biomechanics relating traumatic forces, moments and torques to tolerance limits for the head, spine and all other human anatomical sites. Injury analyses include medical chart reviews, human dynamics literature and product testing in cases involving personal injury. Hannon Biomechanics Analysis medical opinion when required is offered by Michael Iliescu MD.

Hannon Biomechanics Analysis has worked and continues to work with 40-50 vehicle accident reconstructionists in the states of Arizona, Nevada, Colorado and California.
