Construction Expert Witness & Testimony

An expert in the construction field needs to have the expertise to provide testimony regarding standards of care, construction mediation, and construction cost estimates. Depending on their knowledge and experience, construction experts may also testify on forensic construction investigations, construction defects, both general & licensed contractors, and construction disputes.
According to the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), “ [There are] nearly 6.5 million people work at approximately 252,000 construction sites across the nation on any given day. The fatal injury rate for the construction industry is higher than the national average in this category for all industries.”

When one of these 6.5 million people are injured and killed during a construction project, Litili’s experts are regularly retained as witnesses in the ensuing legal hearings. These experts can help determine how an accident occurred, and explain it’s nuances to a court of law.

Who is a Construction Expert?

A construction expert has in depth knowledge and experience of the construction industry. This same expert should also be able discuss and describe industry standards, technical language, and complex issues to a lay audience. An expert’s testimony helps educate attorneys and the court on issues relating to construction law: such as codes & compliance, construction costs, construction defects, construction safety, and construction delay claims.

Legal claims from construction projects usually involve contract and property law; having the right expert explain industry standards and terms is imperative to your case’s success.

We have experts that are:

  • Engineers
  • Contractors

An experienced attorney understands that construction litigation can quickly become uniquely complex, filled with technical laws and guidelines. Because of this complexity, we often find construction cases to be separate from other litigation proceedings.
