Coefficient of friction expert witnesses are experienced in various types of accidents for premise liability cases. Coefficient of friction refers to the ratio of the force between two materials moving alongside one another, such as tires on the pavement of a road, which factors into the details of an accident. The coefficient of friction is therefore a major aspect during the processes of accident investigation and accident reconstruction. Determining the ratio between the forces involved in an accident requires a qualified and credible expert witness, whether it is an automobile accident or slip and fall incident.
Coefficient of friction expert witnesses are experienced with slips, trips, and falls, as well as incidents involving automotive accidents, bicycle accidents, conveyers, elevator failure, ladders, pedestrian accidents, scissor lifts, skip loaders, sports and industrial injuries, construction equipment accidents, amusement rides, and machinery accidents, as each of these may be related to the discipline. The coefficient of friction must be considered when designing and manufacturing machinery, as a design defect may result from miscalculating the coefficient of friction, which can cause equipment failure and other types of accidents.
Coefficient of friction expert witnesses are often asked to provide an expert opinion regarding the use of machine guarding and other measures of safety engineering in relation to the discipline. They also have expertise in human factors and biomechanics.
