Aquatics expert witnesses may serve as invaluable sources for several types of lawsuits, as any sport or activity taking place in or on water may become the subject of possible litigation. Aquatics expert consulting may provide valuable insight for cases involving such areas as the maritime industry, mechanical engineering, water recreation and safety, aquatics facility operations, aquatics facility design, accident prevention, marine engineering, environmental engineering, naval architecture, athletics, physical education, water parks, or other related issues, as each may be at the center of an unforeseen lawsuit.
Since the field of aquatics encompasses such a wide variety of activities, aquatics experts often have a particular area of focus within the discipline. Many aquatics expert witnesses, for instance, may specialize in boating, including boating accidents, commercial and recreational vessels, navigation, coast guard, ocean motor vessels, transportation safety, small craft, and various standards of care, as well as other maritime rules and regulations. Aquatics experts may be tasked with offering an expert opinion regarding an accident investigation and reconstruction in the event of a boating accident as a means of determining the source of the incident.
Other aquatic experts may have experience with swimming pools, including the swimming pool design, diving boards, and other details involved with aquatic facilities. In such environments, the proper safety warnings must be implemented to avoid swimming pool accidents and/or slips, trips, and falls, as well as other issues concerning premises liability.
