Andrew A. May

—Forensic Consultant

Professional Profile

Mr. May is a Forensic Consultant with extensive experience, education, and training in the fields of Accident Reconstruction and Mechanical Engineering. He has over 17 years of experience with reconstructing collision events using advanced engineering methodologies, as well as over a decade in Mechanical Engineering design, development, and manufacturing roles. As an Adjunct Professor for 12 years, Mr. May led numerous university-level Mechanical Engineering research and design projects focused on innovation and production of mechanical engineering concepts.

At Focus Forensics, Mr. May conducts investigations and analyses of collision events, including factors related to vehicles, drivers, and roadway environments. He applies his broad and deep mechanical engineering experience to the data collection, modeling, and analytical understanding of dynamic vehicular incidents. His practice includes the evaluation of issues related to all types of transportation users, including automobiles, pedestrians, bicycles, motorcycles, commercial vehicles, transit, highway-rail grade crossings, and work zone temporary traffic control.

His role includes field investigations, data collection, vehicle and scene documentation, electronic data retrieval, and inspections of vehicular and roadway systems. Mr. May utilizes cutting edge technology to capture evidence and preserve electronic information, including FARO 3D laser scanning, Total Station laser mapping, Bosch CDR vehicle download system, commercial vehicle Engine Control Module (ECM) data extraction systems, unmanned aerial vehicle (U A V) mapping and imagery , speedometer inspection, forensic photography, photogrammetry, and traffic signal data documentation. He is skilled in forensic diagramming and 3-D modeling for the analysis and demonstrative visual communication of engineering concepts.
