We pride ourselves on bringing to you the best work product available within our field of investigation. In addition, Yates & Associates, Inc., offers expert consultation in the area of origin and cause. Over eight thousand fire investigations have been performed by Yates and Associates, Inc., that encompasses both accidental and incendiary fire losses. Our investigators realize that a thorough investigation may not end with the field examination, but many result in follow-up work and litigation. Our associates are qualified as trial experts and have testified in numerous civil and criminal trials, both in state and federal courts.
The years spent in investigations have demonstrated consistencies with many trends while in other areas, there have been sweeping changes. In many cases, the motive for an incendiary fire may depend on closely viewing and analyzing the fire scene. These motives, that include fraudulent fires, are of great importance to our clients. At the same time, more subrogation cases are developing with the origin and cause investigation pointing to product failure or third party negligence. We stand ready to examine any fire or explosion scene in order to determine the facts whether those facts lead to a cause classification of incendiary or accidental. Our investigations based on scientific principles of fire investigation stand on the facts whether those facts point to product failure, negligence or a strong defense in incidents where there is no product failure or negligence on the part of our clients. Yates & Associates, Inc., stands ready to present the factual Information discovered during the investigative process in order for you to fully evaluate the incident and make a determination based on the facts presented.
