As with any type of machinery so commonly used in our daily lives, elevators may become the subject of a legal matter. Elevator expert witnesses come from a variety of different backgrounds. There are elevator inspectors, mechanical engineers, vertical transportation engineers, safety engineers, and electrical engineers, all of whom possess knowledge on the maintenance, repair, design and build of elevators.
A case involving elevators may be brought about over an accident, failure, or malfunction of the machinery. Outside factors may also contribute to such problems, including floods, fires, or other naturally occurring damage. To avoid such situations, there is a rigid series of codes, regulations, and standards that must be met before allowing the use and operation of an elevator. The various concerns involving the elevator mechanisms, including conveyers, equipment failure, electrical codes, building codes, water intrusion, and construction defects may all be considered in an elevator case.
In any injury or accident-related case, elevator expert witnesses with expertise on insurance, codes and compliance, claims, failure analysis, accident investigation and reconstruction, safety audits, valuation, accident analysis, human factors, and premise liability, as well as slips, trips, and falls, is potentially relevant and valuable information.
