Introduction

Experts in this field are engineering specialists who have focused their studies on building construction accidents. An engineer is a person who designs, builds, manages, and pilots engines and systems. An expert in this area will be an engineer who specialises in analysis of construction, and therefore, the failures that can occur within that environment. Construction accidents occur most commonly when there is a fall from a height especially from scaffolding, slips and falls, electrocutions, falling debris, and many more. It is one of the most dangerous industries and results in thousands of accidents a year. Construction engineering specifically relates to the designing, planning, construction and management of infrastructure.

Construction engineering experts are very important to the investigative process. In relation to injuries sustained on site, the incidents investigated often result in huge amounts of harm and even death, as well as financial losses. A construction engineering expert can investigate the causes and circumstances of the injury, and determine if any mitigation should have been performed or is a system was not up to code. These investigations can often provide crucial evidence in cases. They are also useful experts in prevention, being used for regular inspection of building site policy and systems to ensure compliance and identify any failures waiting to happen. The processes by which they delve into these systems are constantly evolving and are highly specialised.
