Electrical accidents could lead to potential lawsuits, which will require the expertise of an electrical engineering expert witness to provide expert opinion who or what caused the incident in question. These types of accidents can take place on a construction site, finished building, or any other place in which electricity is utilized.
Construction work may be a major factor in the event of an electrical accident, since electrical systems and products are installed during the construction process. Certain codes and compliance are in place to regulate the electrical work being done in such areas, as construction sites are at risk for accidents due to the nature of the field, which often includes electrical construction. Construction damages and construction defects can raise the risk of an electrical accident, resulting in potential court cases. It is often the duty of the electrical accident expert witness to evaluate the situation and determine the source of the issue, whether it was a human factor on behalf of the inflicted individual or an issue related to an electrical construction and/or product.
An electrical accident expert witness may conduct an accident investigation and reconstruction, the evidence of which would greatly affect the outcome of a case. By conducting this type of assessment, it can often be determined if the required industry standards of care and OSHA regulations were properly enforced when the incident in question took place.
