An asbestos expert witness may be experienced in such areas as architecture, construction, environmental assessment, mechanical engineering, industrial hygiene, occupational and environmental health, environmental management, civil engineering, electrical construction, OSHA (Occupational Safety and Health) compliance, indoor air quality, chemistry, internal medicine, toxicology, environmental science engineering, and/or environmental remediation. Asbestos is a mineral substance that has been used in the past as a material in numerous construction and manufacturing projects because of its then apparent advantages as a viable element, including the ability to serve as a fire resistant source of building insulation. It was later discovered, however, that asbestos is a very dangerous substance that can prove harmful to one’s health when exposed to the material in question. The ramifications of such exposure may be assessed via asbestos consulting in the event of litigation.
Asbestos was still being used throughout the twentieth century, thus many construction projects containing the material may be currently standing, which can lead to numerous types of health problems for the building’s occupants, as well as solid grounds for possible lawsuits. Asbestos expert witnesses are therefore often experienced with the various means of asbestos removal, which must be done to prevent future exposure to toxicity, along with the removal of mold, lead paint, and other harmful substances, that would be a violation of building code compliance. Any type of prolonged hazardous chemical exposure would be an environmental violation for any structural project, whether it is residential, commercial, civil, or business.
