Expert Witness Services for Electrical Fires

Like any other fire, an electrical fire can lead to explosions, causing even more catastrophic losses, including injury and death.


Looking back at the wiring requirements for homes or businesses two decades ago, there’s a notable difference with today’s standards. This contrast emphasizes the importance of electrical fire investigators possessing extensive knowledge of codes, equipment, and materials. Furthermore, modern businesses face the constant demand for expansive data centers, servers, computers, and other technology, presenting distinct challenges and specific restoration requirements.


Common electrical fire causes include:

– Failures within electrical distribution, lighting, and equipment.

– Faulty, outdated or misused electrical appliances, wiring and components.

– Improper grounding.

– Electrical components/appliances in close proximity to flammable materials.

– Short-circuits, electrical events (lightning storm) or utility incidents in the area.

– High resistance or loose connections

– Server rooms and other digital infrastructure (can create immense heat).
