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. Click the button below to view recent product recalls in the United States.

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.

“Failure-to-warn is a common cause of action in product liability lawsuits. Human factors experts can provide a scientific perspective on questions of how warnings may, or may not, influence behavior. Sometimes the answers are surprising to people unfamiliar with research in this 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.

Our experts use 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.
