Product Liability Consulting

FireTech, Inc. fire experts recognize that in many circumstances a product or piece of equipment may be identified as a possible contributing factor to a fire or explosion event. Has your company or firm received a “Notice of Loss” or “Notice of Potential Claim” letter? If so, trust our fire expert to represent you honestly and fairly and let us provide you the fact-based opinion on whether or not your product or service truly contributed to the event or circumstance. It has been our experience that, on occasion, product manufacturers or service providers have been identified as possible responsible parties for an event related to a fire with little or no fact-based evidence to support the allegation.

We offer product liability consulting services throughout the United States. Due to our central location in the Midwest and our ease of logistics the use of our fire experts have proven to be a valued asset to our clients.
