A engineering expert witness in relation to restaurants and hospitality is someone who is knowledgeable in issues related to restaurant and hospitality design, architecture, building materials, safety standards, maintenance and other aspects of the construction of a restaurant or hotel. They are usually employed by legal companies to assess any liability issues surrounding a construction project or any related lawsuit. With their knowledge of engineering principles, they are responsible for verifying the accuracy of technical reports related to the case as well as providing objective testimony on various topics.

In terms of restaurants and hospitality specifically, an engineering expert witness can evaluate the structural design quality used for a building. Most notably this may include things such as assessing how visitor levels will affect a buildings efficacy over time; how existing foundations may support expansion plans; how safe people in different areas will be; what types of materials have been used appropriately when constructing an area (especially regards fire resistance requirements); whether noise or vibration levels could become problematic in certain areas; whether all local regulations have been followed respectfully; or even offering advice on new technologies that could be implemented with regard to energy efficiency.

At trial an engineering expert witness must provide factual information that cannot otherwise be provided by witnesses for either side involved in litigation. This includes providing details about relevant aspects during direct examination from an attorney representing either side as well as cross-examination from the other’s attorney both technically and factually under oath based upon their professional opinion with regard to what has been presented during their services used throughout the proceedings between action and conclusion granted legally forthwith.
