When Should You Seek Help from an Expert Witness?

Personal injury, professional design, construction, and other legal cases are difficult by themselves. But, when technical intricacies complicate the proceedings of your case, you should consider adding a forensic engineer or architect expert witness to your legal team. These professionals will assist you in translating the complicated language and jargon in their field, and in determining the cost of damages and financial loss.

What’s the Process of Working with an Expert Witness for Engineering?

Before you hire one of our experienced engineer or architectural witnesses, it’s important that you know how the process works. Our team will provide you with clear and insightful information throughout the legal proceedings. Typically, the process of hiring an expert witness is as follows:

  1. Initial Consultation and Case Evaluation: We want to make sure that we can provide you with reliable assistance before agreeing to assist with the case based on expertise and availability. Learning the basics of your case will provide us with the necessary information.
  2. Document Review and Data Gathering: Once we sign on to work on the case, we’ll gather all applicable information and help determine what documents we would need to provide our evaluation.
  3. Investigation and Analysis: Our professionals will conduct our own investigation into the various claims that are being made in your lawsuit so we can ensure that all of the bases are covered. This may include conducting additional site testing or intrusive testing into the property components.
  4. Depositions and Testimony: We will work closely with you to provide informative and truthful testimony in deposition and trial to assist in the resolution of the case.

Trust our expert witnesses to provide you with strong litigation support for your legal proceedings. Contact us today to schedule an appointment with our team.

I enjoy the opportunity to communicate my investigation and findings in a trial setting. I find it most compelling to personally exlplain my opinions to the court.

Rachel – thanks for your efforts on this.  We settled for less cost than a site visit!!!!!  However, I would have liked to see the drone in action.
