Engineers

Our weather experts assist engineers with structural damage cases. We provide site-specific weather details that allow engineers to determine what weather was responsible for damage, or if damage was caused by the weather or inadequate maintenance/improper construction. When it comes to litigation, the wisest strategy is to leave the engineering to the engineers, and the weather to the weather experts. Taking data from the nearest available reporting sites can lead to opinions based on inaccurate information. This creates a significant liability and exposure for any engineer, when challenged. Our weather experts are American Meteorological Society (AMS) Certified Consulting Meteorologists that have extensive experience reconstructing the weather for site-specific locations and have testified on numerous occasions in both state and federal courts across the country.
