Construction Damages Expert Witnesses
Construction damages expert witness candidates typically have extensive experience and expertise in contract law, construction management, economic damage analysis, and/or as a civil engineer. Construction project contracts can lead to disputes, often only resolvable via mediation, arbitration, or litigation. In general, there are three classifications of construction contract damages:
- direct damages – actual costs to repair or replace defective or deficient work
- liquidated damages – intangible liability, such as a failure to fulfill minority business subcontracting quotas
- consequential damages – liability for losses that the contracting parties should have foreseen.
Representing the plaintiff or defendant, top litigation firms call on Cahn Litigation Services to find expert witnesses to support construction dispute matters, including those involving construction damages. Legal proceedings that Cahn Litigation Services has sourced experts for have encompassed:
- a construction accident involving personal injury
- construction code violations
- construction delay issues
- construction defect case support.
Litigation support services for a construction case could include construction work analysis, expert report preparation, expert opinion, deposition, and/or expert testimony at trial. In a high-profile case, or litigation involving a significant financial stake, an attorney may request construction professionals with prior expert witness testimony experience. In addition, clients may seek a construction industry expert for pre-litigation consulting work. While many professionals have specific knowledge in construction damages, an expert witness carries the additional responsibility of providing testimony before the court in a manner whereby lay people (a jury) can understand the construction litigation evidence.
