Thanks to S-E-A's amazing associates who participated in our Denim for Donations program, we were able to deliver a giant truck load of toys to the Central Ohio Toys for Tots and also a generous check! We are thrilled again to be able to support the communities we call "home" this holiday season. A special thanks to the volunteers and Marines we met at Rickenbacker Air Base who are giving their time to the program. Learn more about Toys for Tots here.
Join our free webinar, "Applications of Mechanical Testing and Visualizations in Medical Litigation", Wednesday, December 5, 1:00 p.m. - 2:00 p.m. EST. Click here to register.
Hosted by DRI, S-E-A Health Sciences Director, Antonio Valdevit, will discuss medical device performance and visualization used in litigation. While medical opinions may be used to substantiate or refute claims, they are subjective, based upon surgical experience, procedural comfort and training of the medical expert. This program will address the use of data driven testing in patient specific scenarios to acquire test results related to the performance of medical devices and the visualization methods available in conveying this message to a jury. The program will highlight several testing and visualization case examples with practical application to litigation scenarios.

We are excited to be hosting an interactive trucking seminar on Thursday, October 11th at our Chicago office. Those in attendance will have the chance to explore the inner workings of a truck and see how it functions! Our mechanical engineers and visualization professionals will create hypothetical accident situations involving skids, sudden stops and simulated collisions. S-E-A investigators will then demonstrate the process of documenting a scene and the S-E-A technology used to analyze and assist in trucking claims.
Review our Trucking & Heavy Equipment Brochure to learn more about how we can help.

Thank you to the members and clients from The Gavel – Your Claims Defense Network, for coming to S-E-A’s corporate office in Columbus on July 27 for the trucking seminar! We hosted 24 attorneys, representing 23 states, along with their six industry clients. Attendees spent time in the classroom learning about the current state of the trucking industry and “The Anatomy of a Trucking Accident”, then went outside (into a beautiful day) for some hands-on experience. Our guests participated in a mock truck accident inspection, climbed in and around a tractor trailer, experienced driving a simulator and rode in the cab of the actual truck to better understand what the driver experiences.
A very special thank you to NFI Industries for providing the tractor and trailer, as well as the driving simulator. Also, a big thank you to the six S-E-A mechanical engineers who came in from our branch offices to join the Columbus mechanical engineers in the demonstrations throughout the day!
