Full Service Forensic Engineering

"Forensic Engineering is generally understood to mean the application of engineering principles and methodology to answer questions of fact that may have legal ramifications.  Thus, the determination of the cause of such failures requires familiarity with a broad range of disciplines, and an ability to pursue several lines of investigation simultaneously." --Randall Noon, Introduction to Forensic Engineering.  Forensic engineers use the scientific method to determine why a failure occurred. Forensic engineering has also been termed as investigative engineering, reverse engineering, origin and cause investigation and root cause analysis. LGI offers unparalleled technical expertise by well-seasoned, experienced professionals.
