Here's What Happened:

When incidents occur we often ask if inadequate training of workers or supervisors who needed to work together allowed an incident to occur? Did supervisors fail to communicate clearly; were directions given in an unclear manner; or did noise or poor lighting cause inadequate understanding?

When there are questions, attorneys and engineering firms know they can count on Jim Wilkinson to discover and report the facts behind these failures.

To the right are some of the many different types of assignments we have handled.
