Consumer Products Forensic Investigation
When a product fails, or an accident occurs, the result can be a financial loss, serious injury or death. When the worst happens, Heiberg Forensic is here to investigate and make a determination on the causative factors.
Consumer products can fail or break for a variety of reasons:
- Inadequate or poor design
- Misuse or abuse of the product
- Manufacturing defects
- Improper or defective materials
- Inadequate maintenance
- Inadequate usage instructions
- Improper usage
- Inadequate consumer testing
Consumer products come in vast array of designs and uses, yet common to most is a reliance on engineering principles in their design, manufacture, or operation. A forensic engineer is often called upon to determine the cause of the failure or the events leading up to the accident.
