Forensic Engineering Investigations

As part of an investigation, we may perform various types of testing in our engineering laboratory. Our experts regularly perform fact-finding investigations and tests to help clients plan a response that complies with the relevant industry standards. We can recommend whether a client should hire a contractor to repair damages or fully replace a component. In certain situations, an ATS representative may support the client with contractor bid evaluations.

Before or after repairs, clients may wish to confirm if their products or structures meet industry standards, such as:

ATS can also send a court-qualified expert witness to testify in a civil or criminal trial. In a legal case, the jury’s outcome may rest on their ability to understand the technical details of the case without having engineering experience. An effective expert witness from ATS can clearly and credibly explain the facts and their relevance to the trial.
