In the event of a diving accident, you might need to retain a diving expert witness for your case. There are several types of diving, each involving plunging into water at various depths. Diving may also be related to several different professions, as it has many applications in numerous fields, each concerned with planning, equipment, and safety measures.
Diving is often performed in the context of competitive sports, in which an athlete jumps from a diving board and plunges into a body of water, most often a pool. The pools and diving boards are designed and optimized for competitive diving by engineers to promote aquatic safety and avoid swimming accidents. Engineering also designs the mechanics of underwater vessel operations, as well as the diving equipment utilized by the crew of submarines and naval ships.
Oceanography greatly benefits from underwater diving, often by utilizing film and movie production for underwater cinematography, as well as underwater photography. Diving science works to advance SCUBA and technical diving in terms of both safety and research. Diving plays a major role in the field of oceanography, as it allows us to study areas that would otherwise remain inaccessible, such as in the case of cave diving.
Because diving is applicable in science, sports, defense, and recreation, all of which adhere to strict safety guidelines in an effort to minimize diving-related accidents, an expert may study diving in one or more of these areas. ForensisGroup has spent over twenty years recruiting only the best experts in each field.
