Some of the ways we support these cases are by providing:

  • An explanation of the events based on scientific principles (not hearsay)

  • A written report (by a licenced Professional Engineer) that can be used to support decisions related to a repair, claim or lawsuit.

  • Expert witness and legal case building support.
