Negligence expert witnesses may have very different backgrounds, depending on the details of each particular case. Negligence expert consulting may provide information for litigation related to such areas as construction, law enforcement, security, mechanical engineering, electrical contracting, automotive engineering, automotive accidents, nursing, healthcare management, retail, workplace safety, amusement park safety, education, packaging, insurance, oil and petroleum, mining and minerals, chemistry, fire protection, sports and recreation, health and safety, environmental safety, and other disciplines. Any time the act of negligence interferes with one’s work, whether causing problems with quality assurance or safety, would be grounds for a potential lawsuit.
Many negligence expert witnesses are called upon to provide an expert opinion regarding the security field, since negligence would be a major problem in the discipline. Security negligence may refer to the act of ignoring surveillance, failing to implement the proper means of loss prevention, or leaving the premises during work hours. Security and law enforcement negligence may also include cases of mishandling apprehended individuals by not responding to his or her basic needs, as well as ignoring security guard procedures when arresting individuals.
Negligence expert witnesses are also often experienced with the medical industry, as neglecting a patient would lead to claims of medical malpractice. Whether it is during surgery, while under a nurse’s care, or receiving a diagnosis, negligence in the medical field is a ground for litigation.
