INSURANCE CLAIMS &
Ed Fry, Marine Engineer license #833473, and other associates often appear as 'expert witnesses' and we stand
ready to assist in this capacity for anyone who has a justifiable claim. Our past experience as designers,
builders, and operators have given us a working knowledge of Admiralty Law, the Jones Act, and we are thoroughly
familiar with the Rules of the Road, the U.S. Coast Guard criteria for vessel construction and operation and SOLAS
Rules and Regulations (safety of life at sea) as well as the Recommended Practice for Small Craft as published by
the American Boat and Yacht Council.
Our education and experience allows us to observe problems, catch potential failures before they happen and do a
better job of forensics analysis of equipment failures and accidental injuries. We survey for condition, value and
cause. Our surveyors know Classification Society Rules of ABS, DnV and Lloyds as well as USCG, SOLAS and MSA.
MEDIATION of WARRANTY CLAIMS
FRY Associates, Inc. is always willing to act as a third party negotiator in settling warranty claims or to
represent the builder or buyer in pursuing their rights under the warranty clause of the contract. We do not offer
legal services; however, we have worked with a few of the best lawyers in the country and we can recommend those
attorneys which, in our opinion, have performed well on other claims.
