Nicholas Young B.A.Sc., E.I.T.

Associate, Collision Reconstruction
Direct: 647-738-5408

Our Associates perform on-site investigations to determine origin and cause of complex losses. Their process: examine and collect evidence, take on-site photos, interview witnesses, conduct testing in our lab and analyze data to produce technical reports that are clear and concise.



Mr. Nicholas Young is an Associate with the Collision Reconstruction group at 30 Forensic Engineering. He holds a Bachelor of Applied Science with a focus in Mechanical Engineering. He is also a Certified Forensic Video Technician through the Law Enforcement & Emergency Services Video Association (LEVA). Nicholas conducts vehicle examinations, site assessments, and investigations for collisions involving different types of vehicles, including automobiles, commercial vehicles, bicycles, motorcycles, and other types of machinery.
