Claims Involving the Built Environment: How Architects and Engineers Can Advise Attorneys

TASA ID: 971

The built environment is full of hazards, costs and losses from which claims can arise. When an injury or loss occurs in an existing portion of the built environment or during construction, an architect or engineer can provide valuable insight in helping an attorney to sort out the issues associated with the physical conditions in the built environment.

Forensic Engineering Investigation of a Long Span Wooden Truss Failure During Erection

TASA ID: 1134

With about one third of the long span wood trusses in place for a 60' by 100' building being constructed as a convenience store, the trusses already erected fell over like dominos injuring three laborers.  The three workers sued a number of parties involved in the project including the crane rental company and the manufacturer and supplier of the trusses, claiming that they shared responsibility for the accident and that they should have taken action to prevent the collapse. The author was retained as an expert witness for the crane rental company.  Investigation and analysis of available facts established that the crane rental company was not responsible and should have had no liability.

The market value may also be needed as an integral part of the initial Purchase Agreement or in negotiating the price itself. While these appraisal situations are fairly routine projects for me, I am always surprised to hear the attorney hiring me state that I was the only one who physically examined the aircraft and its records when developing my opinion of value.
