Forensic Human Factors Services

December 12, 2023

Human Factors is the study of the capabilities and limitations of people and how these shape the ways in which people make decisions regarding interactions with products, processes, and environments.

Despite awareness, experience, training, and knowledge, most accidents still result from human error. People often make decisions and behave in ways that increase the risk of an accident or injury. In some cases, accidents occur due to an honest mistake; in others, people intentionally break from safe practices.

Rimkus Human Factors experts have a deep knowledge of human behavior and why individuals sometimes engage in less-than-safe activities. Our evaluations are grounded in scientific studies of human behavior and response in a variety of situations involving injury accidents, product liability, premises liability, and related matters.

Human Factors is an essential part of accident evaluation in a wide range of cases involving consumer and commercial products, medical devices, oil and gas operations, construction, mining, industrial worksites, utilities, railroad crossings, aviation, commercial trucking, automobiles, and premises.
