Fire protection expert witnesses may become highly relevant for numerous fire-related lawsuits, since fire protection refers to the process of controlling fires so as to prevent possible destruction and damage. Fire protection expert consulting can provide insightful information for cases involving such areas as safety engineering, fire safety science, fire protection engineering, mechanical engineering, fire and building codes, fire research, heat transfer, fire and explosion investigation, civil engineering, arson, fire service, occupational safety and health (OSHA), electrical contracting, electrical engineering, fire causation, the construction industry, security, fire cause and origin, accident reconstruction, failure analysis, workplace safety, and other related issues, each of which might be at the focus of litigation pertaining to fire protection.
Fire protection experts are often skilled with mechanical engineering, since mechanical systems are often utilized as a means of fire protection. Fire protection expert witnesses are often called upon to provide an expert opinion based on the results of a fire cause and origin investigation, whether it is related to pool fires, spontaneous combustion, oil and gas fires and explosions, fabric flammability, appliance fires, electrical fires, or other possible sources. Fire protection experts may also be sought out for their knowledge of building code compliance, since violating flammability codes and standards, as well as other types of rules and regulations, would cause problems for fire protection and be grounds for potential lawsuits.
