Building defects legal solutions-The need for triage process for choosing experts
Often building related building defect cases are much more complex than they appear and need more than one expert type to understand and solve the issue.
Choosing the right expertise to help solve the case is a complex matter and it needs specific expertise which we have at Expert Triage.
Building defects- choosing the right expert witnesses
In so many of the legal cases I have been asked to provide expert witness testimonial, when I arrive the relevant experts have already been decided. An engineer may be partly relevant to solving the problem, but a broader review of other issues might need other experts.
Building defects legal solutions-What is Expert Triage?
We use our Expert Triage process like the nurse at the emergency ward at the hospital. An assessment of the patient is made and specialists are allocated. In building defects cases needing legal solutions, the same process is needed. Unfortunately lawyers do not always have the technical skills to choose the right expert.
What is an expert witness? Building defects legal solutions
In complex legal cases, issues are complex and need more than just a legal solution and in building defects cases this is even more necessary. The court will seek out an expert with professional or lived experience to make a testimony related to the building defects case.
This may be a project manager of building projects, an architect, an engineer or a trade. The complex case may need all of these.
