Marine Accident Experts

The maritime experts at Robson Forensic are frequently retained to investigate collisions and other mishaps that occur on and around the water. We bring the scientific method approach to vessel accidents, whether that vessel is an ocean going freighter, sport fishing boat, or a PWC (Personal Water Craft).

The Resources and Experience to Investigate Vessel Accidents

Our experts cull through all the available information to present a clear, concise report of what happened and why. On sea going vessels this may include using the AIS (Automated Identification System), chart recorders, bridge transmissions, and engine order telegraphs to determine the steps in the progression of the accident.
