MISSISSAUGA, ON, May 17, 2018 /insPRESS/ – Vibrations originating from rail and vehicular traffic, jackhammering, bulldozing, pile driving and blasting can cause property damage that ranges from purely cosmetic to structural.

Given the rise in urban development, with construction frequently taking place alongside aging building stock and infrastructure, it’s unsurprising that the number of vibration damage claims we see have been steadily increasing. However, in order to successfully administer a claim, insurers, adjusters and lawyers need to know what information is critical to an investigation.

In this free 1-hour webinar, we will be discussing:

  • Common sources of vibrations
  • How vibrations cause damage
