Paul Zamrowski Associates, Inc.
Forensic Engineering

In the world of engineering, making sense of complex issues often feels like solving a giant puzzle. At Paul Zamrowski Associates, Inc., we specialize in putting these pieces together to reveal clear solutions.

Experience and Integrity are the keys to our success in this esoteric field.

With expertise that spans over five decades in support of the legal and insurance claims industries, our team leads the way in failure & reconstruction consultation, and forensic engineering investigation and analysis. The truth is, when accidents happen or systems fail, understanding why is key to preventing future incidents and assisting in claim coverage issues and subrogation potential.

Our background includes a broad range of projects involving civil, structural, electrical, and mechanical engineering disciplines across multiple states including Delaware, Maryland, New Jersey, and Pennsylvania.

We determine how or why incidents occur based upon the physical evidence, explore the extent of damage, and ascertain whether a design, manufacturing, construction, or service defect was at fault.

Plaintiff or defense, our findings are impartial. Investigations cover everything from collapses, structural failures, roof leaks, plumbing leaks, freeze-ups, wind and hail damage, HVAC issues, mechanical and electrical equipment failures, fire cause and origin determination and support, determining code and standard conformance, etc. 

Each investigation involves compiling background information, performing any necessary internet or weather data research, gathering, inspecting and analyzing the physical evidence available, and reconstructing the incident based on sound scientific and engineering principles.  Conclusive, supportable opinions are then presented in clear, concise reports, fully illustrated with diagrams, drawings and photographs.

All of our associates are licensed professional engineers and court certified expert witnesses for litigation support.

We bring this depth of experience to each new challenge—ensuring precise analysis and dependable results for our clients.
