Recent Fires Turn Safe Deposit Vaults Into Ovens

TASA ID: 1018

Over the past few months, the events that followed damaging fires at several financial institutions across the nation have significantly affected our safe deposit industry. These fires were caused by severe lightning strikes, electrical wiring problems and a carelessly discarded cigarette. After fires totaled all of these facilities, each one was confronted with some very difficult challenges and tough decisions.

Aging Malls Breed Litigation

TASA ID: 396

Prior to October of 2012, my previous shopping center personal injury case was in 2004. Since last October, I have been asked to serve as an expert witness in four litigation matters involving serious personal injury or wrongful death that happened in or around regional malls.  In my analysis of this unique cluster of cases, it occurred to me that they all shared a common, but poorly understood, element that I thought worth sharing with readers of The TASA Knowledge Center.

Electrical Equipment Failures Cause and Liability

TASA ID: 419

Many insurance claims and lawsuits are the result of electrical system failures.  The basis for such actions is frequently personal injury and/or property damage that can be caused by fire or other degradation of related systems, vehicles or structures.  It will be shown that electrical systems can have high inherent reliability to minimize end-product field service costs, safety hazards and, of course, liability. Failures of electrical systems are most frequently due to external factors such as poor design, improper use, faulty manufacturing, substandard service, mishandling and other causes. System malfunctions are rarely caused by random component failures and a properly executed failure analysis will almost always identify an entity liable for resultant damages.

Excavating Accidents

TASA ID: 1092

OSHA states that workers have a right to a safe and healthy work environment, including construction workers handling excavations in trenches.  A trench is a type of excavation or depression in the ground that is generally deeper than it is wide (as opposed to a wider gully or ditch) and narrow compared to its length (as opposed to a simple hole). Trenches are used on many construction sites to lay pipe, cables and conduits among other reasons.
