Construction engineering expert witness candidates typically have engineering experience in construction management, construction safety, environmental engineering, geotechnical engineering, earthquake engineering, traffic engineering, mechanical engineering, civil engineering, and/or structural design. The expert witness chosen could be a member of an industry organization such as the the American Institute of Constructors (AIC), American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE), the National Council of Structural Engineers Associations (NCSEA), the Construction Industry Institute (CII), or the International Structural Engineering and Construction Society (ISEC). In a high-profile case, or litigation involving a significant financial stake, a law firm may request a construction engineering professional with prior expert witness testimony experience. Construction engineering encompasses the design, planning, construction and management of infrastructures (i.e., roads, bridges, airports, railroads, buildings, dams). Cahn Litigation Services has been approached by numerous clients to locate expert witnesses that can support construction engineering matters. Example matters include:
Litigation support by a construction engineering expert witness could include failure analysis, structural investigation and condition assessment, forensic engineering, an expert report, expert opinion, deposition testimony, and courtroom testimony.
