Biodynamic Research Corporation (BRC) is a professional services firm specializing in biomechanical analysis and accident reconstruction. BRC is located in San Antonio, Texas and serves clients throughout the United States, Puerto Rico, Canada, and Mexico.
BRC was founded in 1986 by Dr. James V. (Jim) Benedict, a physician with a PhD in Mechanical Engineering. The focus of BRC at that time was to retrospectively analyze automotive collisions, determine the application of the collision’s forces to the vehicle occupants, and determine the injury consequences. Over the years, BRC has applied this type of analysis to numerous traumatic incidents including, but not limited to, both high and low velocity passenger vehicle collisions, slip and fall events, and injury events involving aircraft, bicycles, motorcycles, ATVs, boats, elevators, forklifts, tractor-trailers, trains, amusement park rides, power tools and light industrial equipment.
Today, BRC has more than 80 full-time and part-time personnel performing or supporting a myriad of professional service activities related to biomechanics and accident reconstruction. These include physicians, most of whom also have engineering degrees, or who have a PhD in engineering, technicians with degrees in engineering, Nurse Analysts, Paralegals, Visual Communications professionals and a Research Librarian, as well as various administrative support professionals.
BRC's consultants are oftentimes designated as experts and asked to provide expert analysis and testimony during litigation proceedings. Over the past 25+ years, in addition to numerous depositions, BRC’s experts have testified in more than 1000 trials throughout the United States as well as in Puerto Rico, and several Canadian provinces.
BRC has also conducted extensive internally funded research related to biomechanics and accident reconstruction. This research has been published in a variety of peer-reviewed technical journals.
