Materiex have conducted a large number of technical failure investigations during the last 27 years, assisting practically every insurance company operating on the Swedish market. We have also helped clients from major industries (steel mills, paper mills, etc.).
Failure investigations and root cause analyses are in many respects similar to a detective’s work. A case is solved by collecting sufficient information and evidence to explain the failure, identify the root cause and suggest how similar problems can be avoided in the future.
The aim is always to reach a consensus regarding the cause of the failure among all involved parties. Of course, this goal is not always attainable sometimes leading to a legal dispute. We have been commissioned as expert witnesses in some twenty cases of insurance related litigation.
