Marine Fire & Explosion Investigation
Understanding the maritime environment and the requirements of marine insurance and law are paramount. Movement of cargo, docking issues, financial penalties, crew safety and interviewing crew before they move on – we know time is of the essence in these cases, as is tact and diplomacy, and an appreciation of different nationalities and cultures coming into play when interviewing crew.
Fire & Explosion Investigation
We understand the prerequisite to accurately prove cause in relation to fires and explosions and to differentiate the effect of the fire, and how this impacts insurance cover liability and any possible recovery from third parties. We are experienced in the specification and reporting of the Computational Fluid Dynamic (CFD) modelling of fires.
Product & Public Liability
We are regularly appointed by appliance manufacturers or their insurers to determine the root cause of a failure and its consequential chain of events. Our systematic approach to investigation and clear reporting will provide the evidence you need to make well-informed decisions on whether to fight a claim or settle it.
Escape of Water, Fluids & Gas
Our forensic investigators will determine whether an incident has been caused by a manufacturing defect, an installation error, system design, environmental factors, a combination of circumstances, or on purpose. We provide timely, clear, concise technical reporting with minimum jargon, keeping our clients informed at all junctures.
Case Review Service
Historical and third party cases can often benefit from scrutiny through fresh eyes, an open mind and a rigorous scientific approach. We have the knowledge and experience to play devil’s advocate on case proceedings, or to review and comment on your evidence to provide fresh perspective.
Mechanical & System Failure
Our forensic investigators come from solid scientific and engineering backgrounds. We understand investigations into the cause of an incident must be dealt with promptly and efficiently to mitigate ongoing and subsequent losses due to business interruption and loss of production.
