Mechanical inspections can help ensure that proper safety precautions are taken within the field for both workers and consumers. Mechanical inspections expert witnesses might be retained after an accident or product failure that resulted in a litigation or insurance claim to inspect the machinery in question.
Many mechanical inspection expert witnesses have backgrounds in automotive engineering, as design defects in automobiles can lead to accidents. Automotive machinery utilized as construction equipment, such as tow trucks and scissor lifts, must also be subject to mechanical inspections, as construction sites must comply with certain standards of care regarding towing operations and other related types of machinery.
In addition to mechanical engineering, mechanical inspection expert witnesses also have backgrounds in electrical engineering, fire protection engineering, biomechanics, metallurgical engineering, industrial engineering, and materials engineering, as well as other areas involved with machinery. Any lawsuit involving an injury or product failure resulting from faulty machinery would be grounds for a lawsuit, which would most likely benefit from the expert opinion of a mechanical inspection expert witness. Such experts can provide an evaluation of the case based on a failure analysis and whether the mechanical failure resulted from a manufacturing error, or human factors on behalf of the consumer.
