Vehicle Accidents: Damage Analysis for Fraud Detection and Human Biomechanics Evaluations by Aman Gupta, Ph.D., and Edward M. Weber, ACTAR, ASE, NAFI-CFEI, NAFI-CVFI
Rimkus invites you to join Aman Gupta, Ph.D., Senior Consultant, and Edward M. Weber, ACTAR, ASE, NAFI-CFEI, NAFI-CVFI, Senior Consultant, for a free, one-hour, on-demand webinar, “Vehicle Accidents: Damage Analysis for Fraud Detection and Human Biomechanics Evaluations.” This presentation will be available until December 31, 2022.
Course Description: Vehicle Accidents: Damage Analysis for Fraud Detection and Human Biomechanics Evaluations is a one-hour course designed to assist participants with the determination of consistency between claimed damage and accident scenarios. This course covers the basic anatomy of a vehicle bumper system and applicable federal regulations. It provides techniques to determine if the damage between two vehicles is consistent. It also instructs on the identification of pole, tree, and stationary object impacts. In addition, this presentation helps participants understand the dynamics of the human body and associated injury potential in low-speed automotive accidents. Participants will be introduced to the body dynamics and injury potential involved in several types of vehicle impacts. The seminar also covers commonly claimed injuries, such as strains and sprains, bulging discs, intervertebral disc herniation, temporomandibular joint dysfunction, and more.
