Emerging Trends Webinar Series 2019

Explaining Cause & Origin of Construction Fires

Forensic Engineering Track

 

Investigating the cause & origin of a fire at a large construction site—a challenging task, no matter the circumstances. In this webinar, our experts rely on case studies to highlight obstacles encountered during these investigations which can range from difficulty gaining access to the area of origin and managing scene hazards to interviewing foreign workers with limited language skills. The presenters highlight how loss adjusters, fire investigators and scientists must develop and possess the skills necessary to manage an array of different challenges. Even claim handlers at (re)insurers risk loss of critical evidence and opportunity to answer important questions, including those related to warranty breach, policy exclusions and potential for subrogation and recovery.
