Quick and Thorough Investigation of Commercial Furnace Fire Results in Full Recovery for Client, Without the Need to File Suit

Following the installation of a new commercial furnace, but before commissioning of the furnace was completed at a large truck manufacturing and testing facility in Illinois, a fire started in the furnace which caused substantial property damage and business interruption for the firm’s client.  Steve was retained on the date of the fire and had engineers and an origin and cause fire investigator on site the next day.  After putting all the potentially responsible people on notice of a potential claim, developing a protocol for the inspection of the commercial furnace and conducting a detailed inspection, Steve was able to obtain a full recovery from the manufacturer and the sub-contractor retained to install the software controls for the furnace without even having to file suit.
