November 11-14, 2012
Paris Las Vegas – Las Vegas, Nevada
We are please to announce that Thomas R. Crane, P.E., President of Crane Engineering will be co-presenting with Tony R. Krall, Esq., partner at Hanson, Lulic and Krall, LLC.
Mr. Crane and Mr. Krall’s presentation topic will be
“NFPA 921-Not Just for Fire -
Developing a Well Founded Opinion”.
Although NFPA 921, Guide for Fire and Explosion Investigations is the basis for this presentation, the discussion is NOT about NFPA 921 itself. However, it will reference NFPA 921 as a touchstone for effective methodology in any product liability litigation.
Mr. Crane, Chairman of the Technical Committee for the National Fuel Gas Code and a frequent speaker at association events stated; “Experienced or ‘well experienced’ investigators and technologists involved in fire litigation have witnessed the evolution of testimony and expert qualifications based on personal experience and generally accepted principals move to, in the course about one generation, increasingly well founded reliance upon established fire science theories and, as we will address in this presentation, the development of an expert opinion through the use of vigorous application of the scientific method.”
We are also pleased to announce that Charles G. Keith, P.E., Chemical/ Mechanical Engineer, Crane Engineering will be co-presenting with
David J. Taylor, Esq., Partner at Yost and Baill, LLP.
Mr. Keith and Mr. Taylor’s presentation topic will be
“Hot and Cold Large Losses: Boiler, Chiller and Commercial Dryer Failures”
Working with your engineering expert is critical in the management of a large loss case involving commercial/industrial process equipment.
The exposure on these losses can involve product liability, workers comp and property claims.
This interactive session will discuss working with your experts to get the information you need to guide your end-game strategy. Case studies will look at large losses involving industrial dryers, boilers and steam valves, commercial air handling and cooling towers.
