Contamination expert witnesses may have varying backgrounds, depending on the nature of each particular case, as the term may apply to numerous situations. Contamination expert consulting may provide valuable information for litigation involving such areas as toxicology, environmental remediation, hydrogeology, railroads and HAZMAT transportation safety, air quality, chemical engineering, industrial hygiene, plant pathology, industrial cleaning and manufacturing processes, real estate appraisal, metallurgical engineering, materials engineering, environmental engineering, property damage assessment and repair, chemical and materials safety, environmental compliance, chemical engineering, and numerous other disciplines, as each may pertain to a contamination-related lawsuit.
Many contamination expert witnesses come from a background working in areas that are at higher risk for contamination problems, which provides integral experience in the event of related litigation. Such experts often have experience with environmental health and safety, employee safety, air contaminants, biochemistry, hazardous materials, hazardous waste, food safety, public health, organic chemistry, and other such issues. Contamination expert witnesses may also have experience in real estate, as the presence of molds and fungus, as well as other harmful elements, may affect the environments of commercial, industrial, or residential real estate.
Contamination expert witnesses must also be knowledgeable in the proper way of handling chemicals and other materials that may cause contamination, as a failure to do so, whether it is due to faulty engineering, safety equipment, or other such problems, would be grounds for litigation.
