Appliance fires expert witnesses may be called upon for several types of cases, since numerous issues may be the cause of an appliance fire. Appliance fire expert consulting may provide insightful information for cases involving such issues as mechanical engineering, commercial and industrial HVAC (heating, ventilation, and air conditioning), electrical engineering, fire cause and origin, accident reconstruction, product failure analysis, fire and explosion investigation, fire safety science, and fire protection engineering, among other related areas, each of which may become the subject of an appliance fire court case.
Because small fires can often grow into much larger threats, appliance fire experts are also often experienced with building fires, electrical fires, and other such incidents. It is important to conduct periodical electrical inspections as a means of preventing appliance fires, as failing to do so may result in fire damage and life-threatening conditions, which would be cause for possible lawsuits.
Appliance fire expert witnesses may also be called upon to comment on whether the appliances in question were built in accordance with the proper codes and compliance, as violating any national electric codes, in addition to other such rules and regulations, may lead to product defects and hazardous conditions. Appliance fires may also be caused by poor ventilation, which would increase the likelihood of overheating and lead to potential fires.
