Underground utilities expert witnesses may be sought out for numerous cases, since underground utilities are utilized in many different areas for various purposes. Underground utilities expert consulting may provide valuable information for cases involving such issues as utility and electronics, construction, industrial workplace safety, civil engineering, occupational safety and health (OSHA), transportation engineering, electrical inspection, electrical design, structural engineering, mechanical engineering, corrosion, construction management, power systems, and many other related disciplines, as each may become the subject of a potential lawsuit.
Underground utilities experts are often from a background working in the construction industry, since a lot of work is involved with utility construction. Like other major construction projects, underground utility sites require strong construction management, construction safety, earthwork, tunneling, different types of construction equipment, cost estimating, construction scheduling, and other planning stages. Since underground utilities are built under the earth, experts are also often skilled with tunneling, explosions, underground mining, blasting, and other such areas. Underground expert witnesses are also experienced with telephone, modems, power systems, electric design automation, semiconductors, information systems, water meters, energy analysis, power distribution, and various types of electronics.
Safety is a very significant factor when building underground utilities, as failing to adhere to the proper construction codes and compliance would create hazardous conditions and be cause for litigation.
