Insurance and Legal Investigations- Composite Structural Damage/Failures

Burke Design conducts numerous insurance and legal investigations of the causes of composite structural damage on a wide variety of vessels, ranging in size from small boats to superyachts. In each case, we travel to carefully inspect the subject yacht or commercial vessel, and recommend/analyze appropriate nondestructive testing. Representative laminate samples are removed as necessary. We often work with respected test laboratories in order to accurately determine the cause of the failures. Our repeated success with this type of work has led to Burke Design becoming a primary resource for these often-challenging investigations.
