Human Factors Expert Witness Services

Here at Sophic Synergistics, we provide ergonomics and human factors expert witness services. Human factors is a science that deals with human beings and how we interact with other people, environments, societal influences, products and services. Our human factors experts work in various industry and government settings to help design and create safe and efficient products, processes, procedures and environments. Our experts are often called upon to provide professional opinions on the human element and the circumstances of the situation that impacted the specific outcomes under review within a case. This includes how people perceive, interpret and react to information or situational cues in everyday life that drive both positive and negative outcomes.

Justice in court can depend on expert witnesses.

Human factors expert witnesses are valuable to court trials because they can deliver insight into many nuances that relate to how humans perceive, understand, and interact with the conditions of their environment or a particular situation. They provide clarity and insight about how and why issues may have occurred and led to the outcomes experienced in a case.
