Every GAI scene examination begins with the end in mind – to process the scene as if the case will go to trial.
We balance this vision with a practical approach by rapidly responding to the scene, interviewing key witnesses, photographing, and preserving key evidence.
GAI then promptly contacts the client, advising them on crucial aspects of the case.
It is easy to determine what piece of equipment failed, but why it failed is not as simple. Was the power strip defective, or was it a floating neutral? Was it a defective temperature/pressure relief valve, or was it thermal expansion of water? GAI understands how devices and components interact with the electrical and mechanical systems at a property and can isolate those problems quickly and cost-effectively.
Water damage repairs and mold remediation costs are now significant property damage claims. New Englanders know all too well how easy freeze-ups can occur. Over our 75+ year history, our associates have secured countless plumbing fixtures, gas-fired appliances and oil-fired appliances to examine for complete analysis and resolution.
When a product results in an injury or mishap, there are many questions that need answering. Who witnessed the accident? Is there evidence of alteration or lack of maintenance to equipment? Was the product unreasonably dangerous? Our engineers are trained to look at the whole picture and avoid the “tunnel vision” many engineering investigators fall prey to.
