We do it all. The experts at Leonard C. Quick & Associates, Inc. can help you or your clients understand the cause of electrical incidents, help prevent them from reoccurring in the future, and provide the much needed mitigation options to help you restore your systems in a timely and cost-effective manner.

Electrical Injuries

Electrical injuries are very common among linemen, electricians and other employees who work on and around powerful electrical systems.

From electrocution to burns, it’s important to understand the cause of an electrical injury. Was the injury preventable? Was the injury caused by negligence of another involved party?

Leonard C. Quick & Associates, Inc. can help you determine the contributing factors and causes of electrical injuries. We can detect if the incident was caused by insulation failure, dangerous arcing/flashover, noncompliance with Electrical Safety Codes & Standards and more.

Electrical Failures

The failure of a large-scale electrical service can have severe consequences. Power loss in a municipal or private grid can cause interrupted service for huge numbers of customers and businesses, and it may even result in life-threatening situations.

There are many factors involved in power failure. Each contributing factor—generators, transformers, power lines, circuit breakers and electrical control systems—must be analyzed to determine the root cause and prevent recurrence.
