Paints, while very useful in various settings when properly utilized, can also be the source of several unforeseen problems. Paint expert witnesses may be requested to offer an expert opinion regarding the quality and safety of the paint in question, as well as other numerous factors. Paint, like other building and construction materials, may prove to be a hazardous material and detrimental to the health of those in contact with the paint. Paint-related lawsuits may also be related to the quality of the product and whether it produces the promised results as indicated by the packaging and marketing materials.
In addition to the paint and coating industry, many paint expert witnesses often have experience in plastic and manufacturing engineering, metallurgical and materials engineering, chemistry, construction forensics, wood finishing and woodworking, general contracting, and other related disciplines. Construction safety requires that consumers be aware of the proper labels and warnings, the failure to do so may lead to construction accidents with combustion and flammability and exposure to potentially hazardous materials, such as polymers and resins.
Slips and falls may also result from the use of paint and other types of coatings or adhesives, which would later require an accident investigation or reconstruction in the event of a court case. Paint expert witnesses may offer an expert opinion on whether the incident in question occurred because of a product defect or resulted from a human factors-related error.
