Insurance Claims

We have conducted hundreds of engineering investigations and cause of loss determinations for corporations, insurers, attorneys and individuals, to determine “what happened?” We specialize in property loss claims for residential, commercial, and industrial structures. We have assisted attorneys and adjustors and provided an engineering determination as to the cause of an accident, failure, or catastrophic event occurred.

Engineering Investigations

HCA has a team of experienced estimators that can determine that scope of damage due to the loss and prepare estimates for reasonable repair or replacement costs based on local labor, material and equipment costs. We have been retained as Appraiser for insurance Appraisals (equivalent to binding arbitration) when the value of the loss is disputed. HCA has successfully resolved or prevailed in numerous appraisals.
