Expert Witness Practice Areas
We've worked in the trenches for years
A witness who is qualified as an expert by knowledge, skill, experience, training, or education may testify in the form of an opinion or otherwise if:
(a) the expert’s scientific, technical, or other specialized knowledge will help the trier of fact to understand the evidence or to determine a fact in issue;
(b) the testimony is based on sufficient facts or data;
(c) the testimony is the product of reliable principles and methods; and
(d) the expert has reliably applied the principles and methods to the facts of the case.
720. (a) A person is qualified to testify as an expert if he has special knowledge, skill, experience, training, or education sufficient to qualify him as an expert on the subject to which his testimony relates. Against the objection of a party, such special knowledge, skill, experience, training, or education must be shown before the witness may testify as an expert.
We take our real world experience to inform you
We are able to draw on decades of experience in order to provide you with the information you need to understand where your case or project stands as to construction defect. Having built, remodeled, moved, and manipulated countless structures we have the real life experience that just isn't possible from a company that only does design work. We have built and repaired based on many different design methodologies and systems and know from real life what works and what doesn't.
In addition to being able to write reports about the failures or defects in a case, we are able to work with the design professionals who design the fix, in order to make sure the solution is practical and will solve the problems you're faced with. We often save our clients time, money, and headaches by aiding design professionals with constructability reports and suggestions.
At the end of the day DKC&P has a duty to maintain the integrity of the building profession. We take this duty seriously and want building to be done right the first time. When it is not we give the needed information to rectify it and make sure those that constructed the faulty work are held accountable.
