Railroad crossing expert witnesses are often knowledgeable in the railroad safety and industry regulations. Railroad crossing expert consulting may be sought out for cases involving such areas as railroad transportation, mechanical engineering, HAZMAT transportation, metallurgical engineering, civil engineering, structural engineering, railway vehicle appraisal, and safety engineering, as each of these disciplines pertain to railroad crossing and may be related to potential litigation.
As with any type of structure involving locomotives, railroad crossing expert witnesses may be called upon to provide an expert opinion regarding the findings of an accident investigation and reconstruction. Because railroad crossings consist of railroad tracks built on various roads, railroad accidents may involve different types of automotive vehicles. Track maintenance equipment is therefore utilized to prevent such incidents from occurring, as any railroad construction project must adhere to a strict set of codes and compliance as set by the industry.
Railroad expert witnesses may also be sought out for cases resulting from train derailments, since they are often able to evaluate whether the proper railroad safety measures were properly implemented during the time of the railroad accident being questioned in the lawsuit. Mechanical inspections of the rail warning systems and other forms of mechanical equipment important to rail operations may also be evaluated throughout the proceedings of such cases.
