Cause Determination

Before a claim can be processed, the cause of the damage must first be processed to confirm policy liability and apply coverage. Establishing the cause of a loss requires a careful assessment of the loss scenario and the application of specific technical knowledge that comes from years of experience in the field.

Our experts carry out multiple steps to establish the cause of a loss.

Regardless of the type of incident, we have the experience and expertise to conduct a thorough and detailed cause investigation that will not only identify the proximate cause of an incident, but extend to the root cause of the loss.

Our experts have been instrumental in identifying the cause of many incidents over the years including:

  • Fire and explosion

  • Building collapse
  • Electrocution
  • Injury
  • Electrical faults
  • Machinery breakdown
  • Subsidence

When we investigate of the cause of a loss, we act with the end in mind. This allows us to see our investigations from the beginning all the way to presenting critical evidence to resolve disputes and giving testimony in court.

We apply the highest scientific and engineering standards in any cause investigation, and therefore we commit significant resources to maintaining our knowledge and enhancing our expertise to ensure that we are offering the most reliable engineering investigation.
