Society relies on heavy equipment to build the infrastructure that connects us, erects the structures we depend upon, and mines the resources that fuel our economy and heat our homes. Like anything else, things don’t always go as planned and incidents do occur. In those instances, the questions become, what happened and why?

At S-E-A, we have been investigating heavy equipment cases since 1970. Our multi-disciplined expertise coupled with advances in technology has made our team, facilities, and methodologies an integral resource for clients across the globe.

Tracked vehicles, cranes, manlifts, forklifts, loaders, and a host of other types of heavy equipment are regularly at the center of our investigations.  A unique blend of equipment-related capabilities enable S-E-A to tackle the most complex loss scenarios.
