Fire Loss for Insurance & Legal Cases
Fires are devastating occurrences that wreak havoc on residential or commercial occupants, often leaving them displaced for many months. However, a fire loss is far more than the damage from direct fire impingement! It is also damage from smoke, soot, water, and heat distortion that impacts a building structure.
Let Forensic Failure Analysis work to find the origin and the root cause of the fire loss, allowing us to help you with your insurance or legal case. We work quickly to get to the scene first, and then efficiently and accurately to obtain the necessary evidence before it is lost or destroyed.
We can provide technical support for:
- Root Cause Investigations
- Extent & Duration Findings
- Repair Advisement
- Depositions, Trials, & Testimonies
