Construction Defects Expert Witnesses are experienced with various facets of the construction field, as a construction defect may refer to different types of issues in relation a construction project.
Construction defects include:
- Error made during the engineering design process
- Masonry issues
- Poor framing
- Insufficient carpentry
- Foundation issues
- Other problems
Failing to adhere to the necessary building codes and compliance may result in the likelihood of construction defects, which would be highly relevant in the event of a construction-related court case.
Construction defect expert witnesses may be called upon to offer an expert opinion on the possible source of the construction defect, which could be the fault of:
- Construction employees
- General contractors
- Construction management
- Construction inspections
- Other departments involved with the construction process
Construction defect expert witnesses are also often experienced with real estate appraisal, as the discovery of construction defects would affect the overall value of a structure.
Construction defects may also lead to unstable structural conditions resulting in personal injury, which may require an accident investigation and reconstruction to determine the source of the possible defect.
Construction testing and evaluation would also be highly relevant in such cases and whether these safety procedures were properly implemented during the building project.
