Experts on Land and at Sea: Maritime Accident Investigators

 

Despite COVID 19, this past summer was one of the busiest for recreational marine boating:

  • Sales of new and used boats, from Personal Watercraft to runabouts, soared to double digit growth.
  • First time boat sales also reached unprecedented levels.

These two factors will certainly lead to an increased number of accidents and losses. CED’s engineers explain the science of boating accidents. With decades of experience investigating marine accidents, they can speak to different causes, ranging from human factors to equipment design and failure.

The CED Approach

  • Navigation experts opine upon rules of the road.
  • Mechanical engineers evaluate product liability claims.
  • Human factors engineers investigate how the operator, equipment, and environment contributed to an accident.
  • Biomechanical experts evaluate the consistency of body motion and injury.
  • Fire/explosion engineers evaluate origin and cause.
  • Naval architects evaluate hull form design and stability.
  • Workplace safety experts opine upon who shares in the responsibility of safety.
