Mechanical


A boiler explodes. A sprinkler head fails. A main water line bursts. A tool making machine malfunctions causing injuries to a worker. Industrial facilities can be dangerous places. Massive machinery, hazardous materials and difficult conditions sometimes lead to unfortunate accidents.

HVAC systems and appliances fail every day in residences, condos, and commercial buildings. A toilet supply line breaks causing water damage to a residence. Was there a manufacturing defect? Was it installed or serviced correctly?
