Floods expert witnesses are also often experienced with hydrology, environmental geology, geophysicists, hydraulics and other aspects of civil engineering, meteorology, geotechnical engineering, and other fields related to the environment.
Floods occur when water rises above the usual level. Properties and various types of real estate must implement safety precautions in areas that are more susceptible to flooding. During a flood, severe amounts of damage may occur. Flooding is often the result of a runoff, which consists of what are usually steady surface levels, such as those of a lake or stream, rising to the point of flooding into the surrounding areas of dry land.
A property owner may have the option of purchasing flood insurance. Such insurance safeguards against the costs of rebuilding after an instance of flooding results in damaged property or foundation failure. Property-related flood damage may result in several different types of cases, including whether the property damage results from human error on behalf of the landlord or tenant, a discrepancy in the insurance coverage, or if the construction company or construction workers of the property failed to implement the proper protective measures against potential flooding, all of which should be evaluated by a well-informed floods expert witness.
