U.S. Forensic conducts tire failure analysis. Our tire experts provide clients with the information that they need to make a sound decision regarding a case or claim. Our experts are mechanical engineers with training and experience to determine if the tire failure was due to a manufacturing defect, improper maintenance, or other contributing factor. Our accident reconstructionists are available to assist in determining how the accident occurred, downloading crash data, and determining if the tire failure contributed to the accident. Our expert will analyze the tire to identify:
- Manufacturing Defects
- Maintenance Issues
- Damage from Road Hazards
- Aging Factors
- Foreign Materials
Visit our Tire Experts page for more information.
U.S. Forensic’s laboratory is equipped with x-ray machines that can be used for non-destructive testing of tires and other components. This is particularly important in cases where a manufacturer’s defect may have caused a tire tread separation or failure. If the other tires on the vehicle are matches, we can test for potential defects without having to cut open the tires.
This equipment can also be used by our engineers and experts to identify hidden evidence in melted debris after a fire. For more information about our laboratory services, please visit our engineering lab page.
Mechanical Systems Failure
U.S. Forensic provides fast and accurate answers to challenging cases.
