UPCOMING WEBINAR:

     RMI Partner David Matejczyk and Jerry Tindal, M.S.M.E., P.E., C.F.E.I. of SAFE Laboratories and Engineering, in conjunction with the National Association of Subrogation Professionals (NASP) and the International Association of Arson Investigators (IAAI) will be presenting a joint webinar on propane explosions on June 14, 2022 at 2:00 pm. 

     Investigating and subrogating propane explosions differs in many respects from other gas explosions. Subrogation fact patterns on propane supplied by a piping system, to losses involving portable cylinders will be explored.

     Participants will learn about propane caused losses as they relate to NFPA 54, NFPA 58, federal regulations and industry standards; and how deviations can result in subrogation opportunities. The webinar will include a protocol for propane explosion scene examinations, including essential on site testing. 
A checklist for adjusters and counsel, legal theories of liability and common defenses will be presented. Finally, participants will be provided with sample discovery materials that are essential in a propane related loss.
