OEC Forensics was established in 2000 by its principle engineer, Jerry S. Ogden, Ph.D., P.E. While serving as a Regular Army Armored Cavalry Officer in the United States Army during the 1980’s and early 1990’s, Dr. Ogden had his first experiences with collision analysis as a Line of Duty Investigations Officer. Since his discharge from active duty following his service during the first Persian Gulf War, Dr. Ogden started his private practice forensic engineering firm while attending extensive engineering continuing education classes and training in collision analysis and vehicle dynamics. He has also continued graduate engineering education through the Ph.D. level, focusing on both Civil and Mechanical Engineering, as well as analyzing thousands of various collision and failure events.
