While allegations of injury occurring on a property owner’s premises are commonplace, the types of incidents reportedly leading up to those allegations—and thus the types of engineers needed to analyze a given situation—can vary widely. Whether we need to determine if an alleged injury is consistent with an incident, if a stair meets code, or anything in between, S-E-A has the associates to assist.
