An equipment appraisal expert witness may have different backgrounds from a variety of areas. Any industry requiring the use of machinery and mechanical equipment, whether it is for construction, retail, engineering, automotive, aviation, medical devices, farming, agriculture, materials science, or any type of industrial field, may need an equipment appraiser for an equipment related legal action.
Vehicle appraisal, including automotive appraisal and railway vehicle appraisal, requires a specific form of appraiser experience with locomotives, automobiles, track maintenance equipment, and other types of vehicle and related machinery. The equipment appraisal expert witness must often take the historic relevancy of such equipment into consideration, as it can affect the equipment’s value.
In any industrial field, such as petroleum and refinery corporations, mechanical inspection is a necessary aspect of the appraisal process, as the functionality and condition of each item must be determined before being assigned an accurate value.
An error in the appraisal process may result in selling machinery under false pretenses, which can in turn lead to potential lawsuits. In such cases, an equipment appraisal expert witness is often brought in to help determine if the item in question was in the present condition when originally appraised, or failed in some way due to human factors on the account of the buyer.
