FIRE &
EXPLOSION

Because they cause heavy material, and sometimes human, losses, fires and explosions are at the top of the list of risks for major claims. These losses, often publicized, are under the microscope and several questions must be answered in a short period of time. Is the event accidental? Is there a potential for litigation? Is the incident the result of arson or negligence? Have certain conditions increased the extent of the damage? In the face of so many challenges, the impartial opinion of an expert in forensic fire investigation is essential.

Our investigations determine the origin, cause and circumstances of the event and specify the legitimacy of a claim and the factors that contributed to the incident. The multidisciplinary nature of our team allows us to provide you with the answers, whether it is a question of non-compliance of the building, deficient alarm systems, risk-increasing activities or human negligence.

As communication is an integral part of our approach, our transparency gives you the opportunity to follow the progress of your case at each step.
