I am a Chartered Engineer and qualified collision investigator with 19 years’ experience of examining vehicles and preparing reports compliant to court rules for the purposes of mechanical failures and collision investigation.
Instructed by both claimant and defendant lawyers plus private and public organisations I am also instructed, and trained, in the role of single joint expert.
I have delivered expert evidence in Civil, Magistrate and Crown courtrooms in the UK and in District, County and the High Court in Ireland.
My evidence has been described in judgment as being “more concrete, more supported by tests of a scientific nature and more accurate on the facts of the case.”
Since 2005 I have been actively involved in collision testing and I am author or co-author of six published research reports. By invitation I presented research at the Annual General Meeting of the Institute of Traffic Accident Investigators, at the Premex Experts’ Seminars, NEC, Birmingham and at the TGC Insurance Fraud Conference, Manchester. I have been a guest lecturer at Sheffield Hallam University and a current member of the peer review panel at Elsevier, periodically reviewing research submitted to the journal ‘Accident Analysis and Prevention’.
I am trained and qualified by examination in the acquisition and analysis of data in vehicle infotainment systems.
