Litigation Condition Assessment

Beryl Project Engineering provides a more invasive structural inspection to determine the cause of damage from hailstorms, hurricane, wind damage, or poor construction. This type of assessment is completely different from our regular condition assessments/structural inspections which just identify any defects.

These more intensive assessments include why there is a defect and the percentages of damage/loss. We normally get hired to perform these inspections by attorneys, homeowners, and the occasional insurance company. This would be for a situation where an insurance company does not want to pay a homeowner for weather damage or other damage covered in their insurance. The insurance company will send out an engineer to gain evidence for their position. We are then contracted by the homeowner or their attorney to provide an independent report with our findings.

Expert Witness

Beryl Project Engineering also provides Claim Support services as a neutral expert witness under the direction of clients to help settle unresolved disputes. These services can include reviewing reports, photographs, and invoices to render an unbiased expert opinion on matters relating to our area of expertise. These are usually in the form of a technical memorandum or formal Peer Analysis Report.

Forensics in engineering is the investigation of materials, products, structures, or components that fail, do not operate, or function as intended, causing either personal injury or damage to property. The consequences of failure are typically dealt with under Florida state product liability laws.

Beryl engineers investigate to locate the cause of failure with a view to improve the performance or life of components, or to assist a court in determining the facts about an incident. In the forensics process, Beryl will offer an investigation, analysis, and a written conclusion of findings. Beryl engineers will also peer review the technical aspects of the opposition’s case by request.

Beryl Project Engineering specialists possess the education, training, skill, and experience to serve as Expert Witnesses and litigation in Florida. This knowledge is sufficient enough that others may officially and legally rely upon Beryl’s Expert Witness’ specialized opinion about an evidence or fact issue within the scope of Beryl’s expertise.
