Hydroplaning expert witnesses may be called upon for numerous types of cases, since hydroplaning refers to the act of skimming over a wet surface with little or no control, which may occur while on foot or in a vehicle. Hydroplaning expert witnesses may be called upon for cases involving such areas as vehicle collision, automotive engineering, traffic engineering, road design, pedestrian accidents, synthetic turf, civil engineering, transportation engineering, fluid mechanics, industrial chemistry, electrical engineering, collision reconstruction, naval architecture, aerodynamics, landscape architecture, urban design, industrial hygiene, safety engineering, physics, environmental engineering, and slips, trips, and falls, in addition to many other related disciplines, as each may become the focus of a lawsuit pertaining to hydroplaning.
Since hydroplaning often involves automotives, many hydroplaning experts may be called upon for a case to provide an expert opinion based on the findings of an accident investigation and reconstruction as a means of determining the source of the incident in question, whether it is due to human factors, weather conditions, highway design, an automotive defect, or additional possible issue. Street design may be a major factor in a hydroplaning-related court case, since the streets must be constructed to withstand poor weather conditions, as failing to do so may result in an accident.
Some hydroplaning cases may involve civilians slipping on wet surfaces, which may occur in indoor or outdoor areas. Warning signs and other safety precautions must be implemented so as to prevent hydroplaning injuries.
