Expert Witness Services

Expert witness services

Years of Professional Engineering training, performing thousands of building inspections, solving building problems and communicating complicated information clearly and concisely are key to providing successful Expert Witness services.  Expert Consultations, sometimes referred to as “construction litigation support”, provides an engineering assessment in support of the claim of the plaintiff or defense attorney. The engineers at Team Engineering are experienced, articulate and impartial.

Clear communication is key.  Years of training affords our engineers the ability to determine construction quality and causes of failure for building systems and components.  Some expert cases involve our engineers determining if construction meets code compliance or identifying the degree to which the plans are followed during construction. Were the materials that were specified on the plans used?  Were they installed as the manufacturer recommends?  Were the normal and customary building practices followed?

Having the knowledge is important to be sure.  However, it is also critical that the engineer can communicate this knowledge so that it is understood by people on all levels of technical proficiency.

Details are our specialty.  Thorough research, clear analysis and identification of causes and solutions are the first steps in litigation support.  It is our experience that many cases are resolved prior to the trial date being set.  This saves our clients some anxiety, time and expense.

For those cases that do proceed to trial, our engineers are articulate, well prepared witnesses that bring the science of engineering to light, which provides clarity against a sometimes emotional setting. We have even had opposing counsels approach us after a lawsuit to request our services on their next case.

Saved us from a possible money pit!

Brian Hansen came out to look at a house I almost bought.  His knowledge and written account of what he saw showed my wife and I that maybe this was not the house for us.  After Brian inspected the foundation on short notice, he sent us a report within a... Read More

They thoroughly analyzed the problem and suggested solutions. They then helped... Read More
