Wayne Rogers Electrical Consultant and Educator
My case work services involve civil suits, such as personal injury, product defects, construction claims, and National Electrical Code and Safety violations.
As a qualified Electrical Consultant, I inspect failed electrical systems, determine the cause of electrical accidents, determine the causes or origins of "electrical fires" or evaluate the quality of electrical construction or review design or maintenance procedures.
The usual steps involved in my inspections include stating the problem, making numerous observations, formulating a hypothesis as to the cause, doing any necessary testing, researching of Standards, Codes, and Electrical Industry Practices, analyzing the results and coming to a conclusion.
My basic job duties are to determine what happened in an incident, prepare a findings report and, if required, assist attorneys, testify in depositions or in court. Since my first assignment, I have produced many reports, testified in depositions and in court numerous times. I understand the legal practices involved in testifying in court, including the standards of proof. I am aware of and practice writing, speaking, and evidence-handling skills.
An outline of my education, electrical licenses, and work related history is presented in my introduction shown on this web site. Much more detail of my history is available on request.
