Environmental expert witnesses may be experienced in any field related to each type of environment, such as environmental management, real property valuation, environmental engineering, occupational safety and health (OSHA), energy economics, irrigation, dewatering, geology, geotechnical engineering, maritime law, environmental science, safety and industrial hygiene, indoor air quality, safety engineering, hydrogeology, water and waste treatment, toxicology, and/or environmental assessment. Whether the lawsuit involves an indoor or outdoor environment, environmental consulting may be necessary to determine how the case affects those within the area, as well as the environment itself.
Environmental health and safety is often at the center of environmental lawsuits, whether it concerns air pollution, hazardous chemicals, or other forms of contamination. Industries involving oil and gas, petroleum, radiation, lead, or other hazardous materials must adhere to the proper forms of waste management so as to avoid committing violations of environmental health and safety, which would be grounds for potential lawsuits and require the expert opinion of an environmental expert witness.
Environmental restoration and remediation may also be the subject of a court case, since improper management may lead to growing numbers of endangered and threatened species. Retaining healthy wildlife requires that wind, energy, and natural resources be retained within the codes and compliance of environmental remediation, the violation of which would be cause for possible lawsuits.
