As forensic experts in the industry, our focus with fire losses and fire investigations is to identify the origin and cause of failures and to examine opportunities for subrogation. To ensure that we are seeing the loss in full picture, we involve our fire investigators within our various disciplines to carefully analyze contributing factors to fire losses.

The purpose of this webinar is to present the typical flow of our fire loss investigations from start to finish (i.e. the first phone call from our clients to a tangible written report). Fire related forensic investigations may require determining the origin and cause of a loss, assessing the pre-existing conditions at the loss location and exploring potential subrogation opportunities. Depending on what stage of investigation we are engaged at, we design our approach to verify that we are seeing the loss in full picture.

This webinar will facilitate the following learning outcomes to insurance adjusters and lawyers that provide services involving property losses relating specifically to fire:

  • Understanding the various stages of involvement of fire loss investigations
  • Important questions to ask and documentation to collect for the assessment of pre-loss conditions and various other contributing factors to the loss
  • Step by step process relating to our testing, analysis and reporting of our findings
  • Reaching a determination of the origin and cause of fires, fire classifications and subrogation opportunities
