Forensics investigator joins Global Brake Safety Council

Brian F. Chase, the lead forensics investigator and expert witness in the Oct. 2018 New York limousine crash, has joined the Global Brake Safety Council.

The case he is still involved in, the New York limo crash, was the deadliest vehicle crash in the United States over the past decade.

Several investigations have shown that it was a direct result of catastrophic brake failure.

Chase has been recurrently qualified as an expert in the sciences of motor vehicle crash reconstruction and automotive technology at state and federal court levels. He serves as the vehicle forensics expert for the Office of the United States Attorney and FBI out of the Washington D.C. Field Office and is the retained leading expert nationally for high profile criminal cases inclusive of felony murder.

He has also served as the FBI Vehicle Forensics Expert for three murder trials out of Baghdad, Iraq.

“Given my truly unique fields of professional expertise and experience, I am excited to provide a critically new realm to the Global Brake Safety Council,” he said. “Indeed, I assess the first hand, real world results of deficient brake system components of which innocent people are seriously or fatally injured. I look forward to working together with this elite team of experts to promote worldwide safety of the motoring public.”

GBSC Executive director Mike Sucharda it is the perfect time for Chase to come on board.

“We are excited to have this strong individual join the GBSC as our organization gains momentum as a recognized authority on brake safety,” he said.

Chase is the founder of Comprehensive Motor Vehicle Services & Consulting (CMVSC) and is an internationally recognized expert in the science of motor vehicle crash reconstruction and the science of automotive technology, vehicle forensics, and the related analyses of vehicle component systems to establish pre-crash deficiencies which may have contributed to the cause of the vehicle dynamics prior to and during the crash sequence events.
