Forensic Engineering Experts

Forensic engineering is the investigation of materials, products, structures or components that fail or do not operate or function as intended, causing personal injury or damage to property. We extend that definition to include all aspects of construction delay and damages. When you need experienced forensic engineers / expert witnesses to find the cause or fault of an accident or product failure, Engineering Services, L.P. is your first and only choice.

With more than 38 years spent as a trusted leader in the field of engineering simulation and physical testing, we have the professional engineers and expertise to uncover the underlying issues behind accidents, product failures, and other design flaws. In an effort to support insurance, subrogation, loss prevention and litigation relating losses, our team of qualified, licensed professionals perform Root Cause Failure Analysis (RCFA) on a wide variety of products and equipment. We routinely examine, mechanical equipment, electrical parts and other system elements to determine if they failed, the cause of the failure and whether their failure could have led to significant property damage.

In today’s litigious climate, we work hard to settle disputes before litigation occurs, using proven engineering principals gained through many years in the trenches. Our international reputation and experience has as its foundation, providing clients with explanations of their situation predicated on comprehensive failure analysis techniques. Engineering Services, L.P. offers senior engineering consultants, engineers and engineering support staff with proven experience to perform the Root Cause Failure Analysis (RCFA).

RCFA starts with the COLLECTION PHASE, consisting of team forming, problem definition, and of course data collection. Next is the ANALYSIS PHASE, determining the immediate, contributing, and root causes of the defined problem. Finally, the SOLUTION PHASE consists of determining the appropriate corrective/preventive action plan that will effectively break the cause chain. In each phase of the process, there are critical steps and simple guidelines to consider that will keep the investigation focused and practical. These are the key characteristics of a successful RCFA that Engineering Services, L.P. employs.
