Finding a highly qualified heavy equipment expert witness can be difficult, but the right expert can make or break a case. Tractors, trailers, cranes, hoists, excavators, and other heavy-duty vehicles and machinery are commonly labeled as heavy equipment. Heavy equipment is often a necessary factor in agriculture, forestry, construction, petroleum operations, transportation, aviation, utilities, industrial plants, undersea mining and rigging, and more.
The use, value, quality, safety, design, or performance of heavy equipment may be critical in a variety of cases: insurance claims, accident reconstruction, personal injury, product liability, defect, or failure, construction related disputes, and OSHA and regulatory compliance. In such instances, an expert in the heavy equipment in question plays an integral role. ForensisGroup has a network of premier heavy equipment experts in the nation.
Experts in heavy equipment may have a broad spectrum of credentials – as engineers, general contractors, appraisers, commercial vehicle drivers, insurance adjustors, or inspectors in their respective industry. Many have academic backgrounds in the geosciences.
