Forensic Services

At Milton Engineering Consultants, P.A. (MEC), we have the qualifications and experience to perform a wide range of damage assessment services. Our many years of experience working with the insurance industry, law firms, contractors, homeowner/condominium associations, and private property owners has broadened our technical expertise and allowed MEC to fulfill the needs of our diverse clientele.

As an Advanced Structures Specialist (StS2) with the Florida Urban Search and Rescue Task Force, Jonathan Milton has extensive specialized training for natural and man-made disaster response. The same skills and knowledge that Mr. Milton uses in assessing structural collapses in order to save lives can also be used to evaluate complex technical issues.

MEC conducts an impartial evaluation of the evidence in order to determine causation, as well as verifying the extent of damage arising from the incident. We provide chain-of-custody evidence collection and storage services as well as clear, detailed and specific expert witness testimony.

For use in the aftermath of major storms, floods or other disasters, MEC has a fully-equipped mobile storm office that allows our staff to respond rapidly and work efficiently and effectively in remote locations for extended periods of time and under adverse conditions of any kind.
