Water damage expert witnesses may be sought out for property damage cases because of their backgrounds in construction, building inspection, and other relevant areas.
Water damage consulting may provide essential information for cases involving such issues as:
- Property damage
- Property appraisal
- General contracting
- Floor covering
- Fire protection and safety engineering
- Structural engineering or civil engineering
- Other related disciplines, as each may be a significant factor in the event of a potential lawsuit
Water damage experts may be called upon for a case to provide an expert opinion on the results of a building inspection, since the presence of water damage may be cause for litigation.
Many water damage expert witnesses often have experience with construction claims concerning the following:
- Construction damages
- Construction management
- Construction defects
- Construction delays
- Real estate development
It is very important that construction projects adhere to the proper codes and compliance required of building sites, the violation of which may lead to flooding and other types of damage.
Water damage, flooding, and moisture intrusion may also cause mold and fungus, which can lead to poor air quality and other safety issues.
Water damage cases may also involve cost estimating for construction defect remediation, whether it involves repairing sprinklers, plumbing, refrigeration, HVAC (heating, ventilating, and air conditioning), or other such areas.
