While the investigation and analysis of incidents and losses is important, the ultimate challenge for a forensic engineer is to effectively communicate complex, technical issues to clients, judges, and juries. Many incidents and serious losses are handled at the insurance claims level, without resorting to litigation.

When incidents become the basis of civil or criminal litigation, we can assist with every step of the process from initial data collection and investigation to engineering analysis, opinion development, and expert witness testimony. When deposition and trial testimony are required, our engineers are admitted as expert witnesses. We have testified under oath in many states, counties, and jurisdictions, including civil and criminal courts at the district and federal court levels.
