Expert Witness

In many instances, our investigations contribute extensively to court proceedings, and as such, our team conducts and documents these investigations thoroughly and through a legal lens. Many of our team members are called upon to serve as expert witnesses and offer strong, evidence-based determinations that stand up to scrutiny.

We can provide expert testimony bolstered by technical resources that help provide a clear stated objective and consultative advice. We take these cases as seriously as you do, and that commitment is reflected in our work.

Peer Review & Subrogation

Pario’s team of environmental scientists reviews completed work by other consulting firms and contractors. Our team of scientists review all of the total costs incurred and methodology used confirming that it was fair and reasonable to the type of spill and remediation.

Pario’s team of engineers investigates whether subrogation is worth pursuing by determining the cause of a defect, and failure. By avoiding over and above expenditure as a result of subrogation, our experts control your indemnity, exposure, and liability.

Motor Vehicle Collision

Legal firms need detailed reconstruction of motor vehicle, pedestrian/vehicle, and recreational vehicle-related accidents. We extract data from a vehicle’s onboard computer, determine vehicle integrity, perform seat belt assessments, conduct crash simulation analysis, as well as mechanical failure and fitness assessments. Our engineering reconstructions and investigations are validated by our experienced experts and the latest technology, computer reconstruction, and simulation programs.

Electrical Engineering

When electrical equipment is damaged or fails, you need skilled experts to determine the cause, assess damages, and provide mitigation options for rapid and cost-effective recovery.

Our Electrical Engineers have decades of experience working with electrical failures causing personal injuries, property damages, equipment damages, business interruptions, and system shutdowns.

We provide a wide variety of consulting services, such as:

  • Forensic Investigations / Root Cause Analysis
  • Design Review for Efficiency and Code Compliance
  • Onsite Inspections for Equipment Assessment
