Legal Expert Witness

RSA’s senior team is often engaged to provide expert witness legal advice for traffic and transport legal matters. The matters typically involve serious injuries on roads or publicly accessible spaces and issues including intersections, advertising signs and parking

RSA’s approach to expert legal advice typically involves:

  • A review of the site, including event reconstruction if required;
  • Preparation of an investigation report;
  • Assessment of contributing factors such as signage, delineation, sightlines and traffic management schemes;
  • Assessment of obligations within the Road Management Acts;
  • Assessment of road design deficiencies including vertical and horizontal geometry;
  • Assessment of crash barrier set-ups and ‘fitness for purpose’; and
  • Assessment of crashes and incidents within road work environments.
