Electrical expert witnesses may be called upon to offer expert opinion on the subject matter of numerous lawsuits, since electricity are used throughout many different fields. Electrical consulting may prove valuable for court cases involving such areas as electrical engineering, electronic devices, computer engineering, mechanical engineering, networking and communications, systems engineering involved with hardware and software, software development, energy economics, civil engineering design, computer science, and heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC), as each may become the subject of a lawsuit due to various reasons, depending on the particular type of electronics being utilized for each situation.
Electrical expert witnesses may be experienced with electrical codes, electrical fires and contracting. Other types of electrical experts include those with expertise in networks, optics, telecommunication, wireless networks, and other areas related to computer networking and network architecture. Additional areas of expertise may include video processing, integrated circuits, programming and program management, automated control systems, automotive electrical systems, and electronic games and toys, since each incorporates various forms of electrical engineering into the design and manufacturing process.
Another industry often relevant to the background of an electrical expert witness is mechanical engineering in relation to various types of construction and the use of construction equipment. Electrical inspections are often implemented as a means of preventing electrical fires and other related incidents from endangering construction workers and occupants of the building, as a violation in the related codes and compliance would be grounds for potential lawsuits.
