Webinar Date & Time:
Wednesday, May 26, 2021 at 1:00 – 3:15 pm PST

This webinar will explore ways to examine break & enter and water damage claims to determine if fraud is involved and how to document the investigation.  B&E claim investigations often rely on reviewing security and electronic systems on site. Sometimes this can extend to neighboring properties and dash cams from parked vehicles. Water related claims can be complex. It is the duty of the expert retained to investigate the cause of the water discharge to determine if it was a manufacturing deficiency, an installation issue, or intentional.  This webinar will include a review of a few case studies where the water damage to properties were caused with intent.  

• Explore reasons for Break & Enter
• Identify how security and electronic systems are used in B&E investigations
• Determine how a thorough investigation might expose flaws in an incident report
• Discuss how an investigator approaches a water damage case if fraud is suspected
• Review how to conduct site and laboratory examinations
• Analyze data gathered during the examination
• Discuss how to present the findings to the client
• Review the use of Supreme Court Rule 7-5 in litigated cases
