In the case of an aircraft accident or an aviation disaster, insurance companies may be responsible for enormous payouts to victims. With such a catastrophic loss, and so much at stake, insurance companies need to know what went wrong and protect their position.
We apply our engineering expertise on aviation related insurance claims and questions of liability. When there is doubt surrounding a certain event, we can help identify the specific incident that triggered the loss.
Armellino Engineering works with insurance companies and private law firms to establish the cause of aircraft failures. We inspect wreckage, evaluate evidence, identify responsible parties, and advise on potential liabilities.
We perform engineering forensic investigations to evaluate airframe failures. There are countless variables in the case of an airline disaster including but not limited to static and fatigue failure, stress corrosion, intentional or inadvertent overload, improper maintenance and inspection intervals, material defects, and many other mechanical factors. We have extensive experience working with material test labs and can coordinate testing, design of experiments and write formal test plans and reports.
Few people have the expertise to understand the implications of each of these factors and the experience to be able to piece it all together. Our broad experience and deep understanding of aviation engineering allows us to provide efficient and highly reliable insurance and liability consulting services, when necessary.
Glenn has over 35 years of hands-on experience in the aviation industry. His broad experience and deep understanding of aircraft engineering, Glenn can help you understand which elements caused the failure and identify those at fault.
