Damage assessment expert witnesses are utilized to assess various types of damage at the center of a possible lawsuit, whether it is physical or otherwise, before the filing of a claim. Damage assessment consulting may prove beneficial for lawsuits based in energy economics, real estate brokerage, marine survey and investigation, general building contracting, fire cause and origin, design and construction, automotive engineering and repair, property damage and repair, arboriculture, structural engineering, fire protection and engineering, electrical engineering, ergonomics, environmental engineering, and other areas subjected to possible damage.
Damage assessment expert witnesses may be asked to provide an expert opinion regarding the cost of damages and the required repair resulting from the incident in question, as well as identifying the source of the damage. By determining the cause of the incident, the proper claims may be made against whichever party stands responsible for the damage.
In a case involving building damage, for instance, damage assessment expert witnesses would evaluate whether the proper construction building codes were implemented during construction, as the required codes and compliance would be essential in determining the outcome of a lawsuit involving structural damage, construction defects, and equipment failure regarding plumbing or other types of building machinery and systems. Damages resulting from violations in flammability codes and standards would also benefit from damage assessments as a means of determining the fire cause and origin.
