The Effective Use of Forensic Experts in Construction Litigation
Select a format
In today's litigious world, it is not a guarantee that a construction project will not end up in litigation or arbitration. And because of the complexities involved in a construction project, a typical judge, jury member or arbitrator may not possess the expertise to grasp some of the nuances of construction issues. In order to be fair, the judge, jurors or arbitrators will need to hear and see evidence produced by forensic technical experts who possess the knowledge and skill to identify, investigate, and analyze problems, and then clarify the issues and give testimony that will facilitate a just decision. This book seeks to examine the issues surrounding expert witnesses or consultants who help present or defend a claim or case.
This book will:
- assist those who wish to become a forensic expert witness in construction;
- assist those who already are, and who wish to become a better forensic expert witness in construction; and
- assist those who engage forensic expert witnesses so that they may become more effective and efficient in the way that they interact with and utilize the services of an expert witness.
The goal is for those who are engaged, and for those who engage expert witnesses, to become more persuasive as a team in telling the story about each construction issue or problem in a way that makes the complex case easier to understand, makes the truth more self-evident, and exposes the fallacies of any attempt to obfuscate the truth.
