Forensic Fire Investigation
Liability is Important in the Face of Tragedy
When a residential, commercial, or vehicle fire takes place, it’s important for all parties involved to determine the cause by conducting a thorough forensic fire investigation. As soon as arson is eliminated as a possibility, the question turns to whether it originated with a mechanical or electrical failure. Discovering the fire’s origin and cause is vital to all interested parties.
Dreiym Engineering’s team of experienced forensic engineers and certified fire investigators provide forensic fire investigation services to help you find the answers you seek. We understand the importance of getting to the scene fast. Sending a fire investigator to the scene right away for initial photographing and scene documentation is critical. Once on the scene, our fire investigators will perform a thorough forensic fire analysis and identify all potential subrogation contacts. The more time that goes by, the more the scene can change. Call us and we can get you talking with our fire investigation team and confirm our ability to get to your site as soon as possible. Once there, we meticulously document and photograph the scene for future use on subrogation and litigation support.
We pull all evidence and store it in our secure storage facility located north of Houston, Texas. There with our laboratory facilities, we can later inspect the retained evidence for signs of a failure that could have led to the fire.
We work with attorneys and insurance companies to establish a root cause. Our team of experienced forensic fire investigators can determine the cause of a mechanical or electrical fire/explosion. For most of our residential and commercial matters, we send out an electrical forensic engineer to assess and evaluate any potential electrical sources of ignition.
In the event of an industrial fire or explosion, the corrosion, electrical, and mechanical systems must be evaluated. An unbiased third-party review from certified forensic fire and explosion investigation experts can help determine the root cause. Contact us to get started.
