Research Trailblazers

When analyzing forensic evidence, we use only the soundest peer-reviewed technical research. But rather than relying solely on the existing knowledge base, we also fund and conduct our own research to contribute new data, models, methods, and formulae to the field. We are constantly exploring concepts that have not been studied or tested enough, or even at all. This is especially true for information that our team requires to support their analysis and reconstruction of crashes. Our Crash Test Conference is one such research initiative that allows us to remain an industry leader. Other examples relate to biomechanics, driver behaviour and pedestrian behaviour. Our company funds over 75% of its research initiatives, and our experts are authors of internationally recognized publications. Our dedication to research and education translates into a win-win-win for us, our clients, and other professionals in the industry; we continue to be trailblazers in accident reconstruction, driver behaviour and biomechanics, while our clients and peers benefit from refined expertise that stands up to the scrutiny of cross-examination.

A Very Forensic History

Kodsi Forensic Engineering was founded in 2006 by Sam Kodsi, a mechanical engineer with extensive experience in automotive safety, accident reconstruction, injury biomechanics, driver behaviour and a knack for research and crash testing. In 2013, Kodsi Engineering acquired Forensic Engineering Inc., which pioneered forensic engineering investigations by being one of the first firms in Canada to offer the expertise in 1968. Kodsi Forensic Engineering has continued to build on the rich heritage with a reputation for objective, science-backed, research-based, and court-tested forensic engineering opinions. In 2017, Kodsi Forensic Engineering entered into a partnership with DIALOG, a leading multi-disciplinary Canadian architecture, engineering, design and urban planning firm, in order to provide even more extensive multidsiciplinary expertise. Kodsi Forensic Engineering is committed to continuous education, refined expertise and to-the-point answers.
