Product failure, explosion, malfunction or breakdown can cause serious injuries and may interrupt business and production.
ESI works with Santa Barbara clients to answer questions specific to each failure analysis forensic investigation.
- What was the breakdown cause?
- Did the product components malfunction?
- Was it user error?
- Is it a product liability issue?
- Who is liable for the damage?
- Can subrogation be pursued?
- Will the failure happen again?
Investigating the cause of product failure, also known as a root cause analysis, can determine liability and prevent accidents or future breakdowns from occurring.
Thorough Origin & Cause evaluations may include fracture analysis, failure testing, component testing, breakdown analysis, product site investigations, product comparison, material defect studies and verifying compliance with California State Code. The components are analyzed for their intended design and interaction.
