This course discussion will take a full life cycle approach on how some structural and product failures can result in injuries, broken equipment and damaged property. An emphasis will be placed on how injury mechanisms and product/structure failure modes play critical roles in determining cause and effect relationships between a failure incident and claimed injuries.

Failure Analysis & Biomechanical Experts will go over basic principles and case examples to illustrate how a failure happened, discuss the injuries claimed, and provide valuable insight that will educate the participant on how to assist in their claim or litigation.
