»Download: Curriculum Vitae (pdf)
Winthrop has a Ph.D. in Mechanical Engineering from Vanderbilt University. His Ph.D. was earned in the department of Biomechanical Engineering. In addition he holds an M.S. in Aerospace Engineering form the University of Tennessee and a B.S. in Aerospace Engineering from (NCSU) North Carolina State University.
Win qualifies as an expert witness in both accident reconstruction and biomechanical engineering / injury causation analysis. This combination affords him the ability to seamlessly integrate the accident reconstruction analysis to that of the biomechanical / injury causation analysis — while holding down costs for his clients.
Specifically, he can explain to the trier of fact how the physics of the accident ties into the propensity of injury (or lack of).
During his career as a forensic engineer, he has worked on over 800 cases. Typical case load includes; but not limited to: automobile-automobile accidents, automobile-pedestrian accidents, trucking accidents, railroad accidents, product defects, and premises liability cases.
To date, Win’s case load has been equally divided between plaintiff and defense.
