Services We Offer
Claims for losses involving electrical, electronic and
mechanical equipment often present adjusters with difficult technical
questions beyond the coverage issues involved. We travel to the loss
site, interview the Insured, determine cause and origin of the loss,
evaluate restoration and replacement alternatives and present a
professional, illustrated report to the adjuster. We follow up with
advice and counsel through the settlement process.
We have been very effective in litigation support by
assisting attorneys in their evaluation of the merits of impending
action and in consultation with counsel during preparation for trial. We
qualify as experts in many fields of engineering practice. We can also
assist in locating an expert if the required areas of expertise are
beyond our scope. We are available to counsel for either plaintiff or
defense and as advisors and experts empaneled by the Court. We have also
served as a neutral on a panel of arbitrators.
Our guidance and counsel has been beneficial to policy
makers, public works officials, planners and legal departments of both
state and local government. The accommodation of electric utilities in
public rights-of-way and the options for removing overhead poles and
wires present issues that we have resolved by mediating negotiations
with R/W users.
Builders and developers face the high costs of the
underground infrastructure mandated by local codes. We have been
instrumental in working with utilities and their customers to reduce the
cost of under grounding through innovative design and properly
evaluating the comparative costs of overhead and underground. We
continue to provide the benefit of our engineering and management
experience to the electric utility industry in the development of design
and construction standards.
