Engineering

ToxStrategies professionals have both the expertise and practical experience necessary to solve challenging engineering problems in a variety of settings.  Investigating an engineering failure requires the application of fundamental engineering principles to uncover root cause. Assessing potential risk of a future incident requires a thorough assessment of potential failure mechanisms.

Engineering analysis provides valuable insights and solutions to a wide array of problems in industrial, commercial and residential settings.  The analysis may be related to a personal injury, a transactional dispute, manufacturing improvements, new facilities, or consumer product design.  Understanding how scientific reality intersects with practical necessity is key to solving real world problems.  Examples of areas where our staff has extensive experience include the following:
