Rimkus Connections: August Edition


Rimkus is a worldwide leader in engineering and technical consulting.

Operating from more than 110 offices around the globe, we provide services to corporations, insurance companies, law firms, and government agencies.

We are dedicated to the timely resolution of accidents, claims, and legal disputes.

We also provide technical solutions for the built environment, proactively identifying, mitigating, and helping to eliminate the complex risks inherent in the procurement, design, construction, and operations of facilities.



Recalls can be the result of manufacturing defects, design issues, or unexpected and unintended user behaviors – for many manufacturers, issues due to user behavior can be particularly challenging.

Our Human Factors group can provide the expertise to analyze user behavior. We can help predict potential misuses before they happen or identify ways to address unexpected misuses when they are discovered in the field.

Offering extensive experience in safety, forensic sciences, and failure analysis, Rimkus has a diverse group of qualified engineers, metallurgists and materials scientists, biomechanists, human factors experts, and safety professionals to conduct accident investigations involving products, equipment, and materials.

Rimkus uses specialized investigative techniques to analyze the full spectrum of the product cycle. We examine the entire life cycle, from inception to end use, including design, manufacturing, materials installation, training, operation, and maintenance.
