Thank you for the great presentation by Marie Cheung-Truslow, Esq. Jerry Provencher, Bill Keville, and Thomas Young at the CLM Midwest Conference in Chicago!
Here are a few takeaways:
• Fire investigations are performed through the guidelines and guidance found in National Fire Protection Association 921 and 1033.
• Immediately following a fire incident, it is imperative to preserve the product, evidence and scene for use at trial and to avoid a spoliation claim.
• Put together a qualified team to perform the investigation, solicit from them a list of items that would assist them and request those items in writing as soon as possible
