Product Liability and Failure Analysis

Open Truck Front


The mere failure of a product is not necessarily proof that it was defective. Abuses such as excessive loading can cause a failure even if the product is properly designed and manufactured. Our engineers have the right combination of mechanical and materials engineering knowledge needed to determine the root cause of a failure.

We have examined seat belts, ladders, engines, golf clubs, springs, valves, ski lifts, conveyors, snow blowers, amusement rides, recreational vehicles and a multitude of other commercial and consumer products. By carefully evaluating physical evidence, service histories, and witness statements, we can trace the exact path to failure and help you assess whether or not the failure was due to defective design or manufacture.

Our engineers can help you evaluate whether equipment involved in injury accidents complied with proper engineering design practice and applicable industry standards.
