Why Use A Forensic Investigator?

With the volume of insurance claims that occur each year, it is necessary to determine if the situation truthfully occurred and determining the cause, so that ultimately, liability can be established. HSM Consulting's Forensic investigators can do this by;

 

• Establishing the cause of a fire, whether due to a manufacturing defect, poor servicing or repair, or arson.
• Investigating the suspicion of a fraudulent insurance claim.
• Examining and identifying subrogation potential, as in product liability, manufacturing defect, poor servicing or repair.
• Forensic lock analysis to see if a vehicle's locks and other systems have been bypassed, to determine if a vehicle has been stolen.

 

Examination, Investigation, and/or Assignment

HSM Consulting's experts will arrive on site as quickly as possible after the assignment is received. This ensures as little spoliation as possible, in addition to interviewing and obtaining statements from witnesses.


Documentation, investigation, and analysis will provide the Client with necessary data for potential subrogation, liabilities, risk exposures, and incendiary causes

Vehicle Investigation

Our skilled experts have the specialized knowledge required to thoroughly investigate vehicle mechanical failures and machinery fires. Vehicle Mechanical/Recovered Theft Examination (burned or unburned) includes site exam, processing and analysis of vehicle, steering column evidence of force or bypass, ignition lock examination (internal and external), inspection of vehicle for existing damage and prior or repaired damages, identification of failed or damaged components, a recall database search and the use of the ADC K-9, if necessary.
