The services provided by earthquakes expert witnesses may be highly valuable to litigation cases, since earthquakes can cause major damage in many different environments. Earthquakes expert consulting may provide insight into cases involved with such areas as home inspections, civil engineering, geology, geophysics, structural engineering, construction management, petroleum geology, and other related disciplines, as each may become the focus of an earthquake-related lawsuit.
Earthquakes expert witnesses are often from a background in structural engineering, as building projects must be constructed to withstand earthquakes and other types of natural disasters. Failing to meet these building requirements may result in construction defects, such as problems with the building foundations, which would lead to a higher risk of earthquake damage, as well as grounds for potential lawsuits. Building inspections are therefore required of such cases as a means of determining if any construction defects led to the damage in question.
Earthquakes expert witnesses may also have experience with earthquake evaluation and rehabilitation, which would be an important factor in providing a failure analysis. Earthquakes expert witnesses may also be knowledgeable with soil engineering, landslides, hydrogeology, groundwater, flooding, drainage, grading, and other related areas. Earthquakes expert witnesses have also often worked in the field of seismology, which consists of studying earthquakes.
