Lighting may have a significant affect on the safety in work zones, public area, construction sites, and products. Accident and safety issues regarding proper lighting can often lead to litigation requiring an expert witness in lighting.
Lighting is an integral aspect of construction engineering and public safety, as any building or other type of structure must be properly lit so as to prevent potential accidents from occurring. Whether it is the light in a public area, such as a stadium or civil building, or the lighting installation in a private household, the failure to maintain safe levels of light can be cause for a lawsuit. Insufficient lighting may result in accidents if walkways and other areas with pedestrian traffic are poorly illuminated.
Traffic engineering incorporates lighting into street and highway design, traffic signals, railroads, parking lots, intersections, and construction work zones. When designing the lighting systems for streets and highways, traffic engineers must consider the vehicle dynamics, pedestrian safety, and human factors. The failure of a lighting system to function at proper levels, including traffic signals and lampposts, may result in traffic accidents and possible lawsuits.
Lighting is an integral factor in the safety of everyday life, whether it is on the road or in a civil building. Contact ForensisGroup today or submit an expert request form to find an experienced and highly qualified lighting expert witness for your case.
