The two most common train accidents are derailment and collision.

The gradual improvement of rail technology has significantly reduced these risks, but has not done away with them completely.

Given the value of the fixed installations and rolling stock used by the railway, as well as the goods transported, it can be expensive to repair or replace them when they deteriorate.

To take into account the specificities of each claim, our experts specialising in mechanical engineering, transportation, accidentology and operational loss act alone or with a multi-disciplinary team to analyse the causes and calculate the consequences.



With my keen interest in transport-related technologies, my career began with automobile damage surveys, before I came to specialise in incidents involving transported goods, especially wheeled vehicles and industrial equipment. Leaning towards industrial and railway risks, I was called on to handle cases involving carriage bodies, general liability and transported goods, machine breakdowns, etc. I joined GM Consultant in 2016 and I am continuing to develop the railway and transport sectors. I take each appointment as a challenge, which I very happily face, and I spend a great deal of my free time boating—my favourite activity.

Loss Adjuster - Transportation & Lifting

As an engineer with a degree in Mechanical Engineering, I began my career as a Technical Loss Adjuster specialising in Public Works. I then moved to Australia to further develop my knowledge of machines, working as a mechanic for four years. Later, I worked as an industrial safety consultant, completing audits and training in Industrial Risk Management. Inquisitive by nature, I took on the position of Manager of On-Board Technologies, in which I led projects involving installation of telecommunications and networking systems (remote monitoring, GPS guidance and CAES systems). Upon returning to France, I joined GM Consultant as Technical Loss Adjuster in the field of Lifting and Handling.

Etienne TURCO
Loss adjuster

After earning an agri-food degree, I set my sights on process development and quality in the dairy product industry. To enhance my professional experience, I decided to move to the United Kingdom for six years, where I became relatively fluent in the language of Shakespeare. Upon returning to France, I became interested in damage surveys and began training in the transported goods sector, in the fields of land, rail and sea. I joined GM Consultant in 2018 as an industry loss adjuster, working in the fields of damage and public liability. I love history and landscapes and share my discoveries with my family.
