Whether you find yourself in a construction dispute, negotiations, mediation or in a lawsuit with another Party regarding construction delay claims, defects or deficienciey issues, you need an expert. Experts are necessary resources to investigate, analyze and quantify the underlying assumptions of a legal claim. These experts are forensic in nature, meaning that they analyze the existing construction, and in particular, trace damage to the root cause, which is typically a construction defect. Experts bridge the gap between the construction damage and the legal cause. This is a critical link in establishing the client’s right to repair or recovery. The essential outcome of any forenscic review is not merely to identify a root cause of the controversy, but also to determine the fault. The next step is to determine if, even if fault is assessed, can there be a remedy for it? Experts are necessary to investigate, analyze and quantify the legal claim. They work with and for your attorney or legal team and provide expert witness testimony to support, validate, and substantiate a claim.
