Engineer's Reports

Engineer's reports are required in certain types of accident at work cases, or in mesothelioma and asbestos-related disease claims. They are usually required in accident at work claims when the claim revolves around a particular piece of equipment malfunctioning and causing the injury, or a particular type of process in an industrialised setting that has in some way ‘gone wrong’ and caused the accident.

The defendant’s insurer may put you to strict proof as to the mechanism of the accident and therefore an engineer’s report can support your account of the accident.

In mesothelioma and asbestos-related disease cases, an engineer’s report may be required as these cases regularly revolve around a demonstration that the workplace or area in which you were exposed to the asbestos fibres which trigger the disease, was not operating within the correct safety parameters and left you vulnerable to exposure.
