When do you need a construction expert witness?
A construction expert witness is someone who has knowledge and expertise in the construction industry. An expert witness will give evidence in front of a tribunal or the court based on his/her inspection and report the construction standards that are being disputed. The expert witness’s report will be a testimony that helps the court decide the facts of the case.
It is best to look for a construction expert witness that has extensive knowledge and expertise in the construction industry, and in the specific areas of your dispute. To build a strong case, your witness should have good communication skills, have experience in talking to a jury and understand court appearances, as well as he/she, should be able to simplify complex issues to a jury who knows nothing about construction.
If your construction firm is dealing with a case that includes building code compliance, construction defects/ safety, cost estimates, forensic investigations, governmental regulations, quality or structural engineering compliance, toxic mold or unsafe exposure to workers it is best to get the assistance of a construction expert witness.
