Our Failure Analysis experts can evaluate a system and its components to determine how and why an accident occurred for product liability litigation matters involving personal injury and property damage.
Failure Analysis is an engineering discipline in which a determination is made as to how and why a system or component malfunctioned, failed, or otherwise did not operate in the manner for which it was designed or intended to be used. The system could consist of assemblies and components made from metal, polymers (plastic), elastomers (rubber), glass, or a composite of a combination of these materials. The system or component failure could result from defective materials, inadequate design, improper manufacturing process, or faulty assembly.
Failure Analysis is used in the investigation and evaluation of structural collapses, machinery, and operating mechanism failures.These failures could result in accidents involving buildings, transportation vehicles, or household products that are utilized in consumer, commercial, and industrial applications. A system and its components can be the subject of product liability litigation involving personal injury and property damage.
