Our experts also have litigation experience. If the fire leads to subrogation or a lawsuit, you will want an experienced investigator from the start to make sure you know the true cause and origin when one can be determined.
Fire investigation involves the examination of all fire-related incidents once fire fighters have extinguished the fire. The practice is similar to the examination of crime scenes in that the scene must be preserved and evidence collected and analysed, but with numerous additional difficulties and dangers. The investigation will include closely surveying the damaged scene to establish the origin of the fire and eventually establishing the cause.
However in order to effectively examine and evaluate a fire scene, it is imperative that the investigator has a detailed knowledge of the chemistry and behaviour of fire and its effects.
