SCUBA Experts

Our SCUBA experts are experienced divers, charter divemasters, and certified lifeguards. These experts can address every aspect of a SCUBA outing, from diver training, to dive charter operations, to emergency response procedures.

Expertise in SCUBA:

The SCUBA diving and boating experts at Robson Forensic investigate diving accidents and associated injuries to determine if:

  • Applicable safety standards and procedures were followed
  • Equipment was assembled and maintained properly
  • Proper gear and techniques were used
  • Proper gas mixes were used
  • Appropriate certifications were monitored / issued
  • Participants were given the necessary skills, equipment, and information to safely complete their dive
  • Dive boat operations and safety procedures were appropriate

Our experts can testify to protocol of standards and safe procedures for dive certification, equipment techniques, appropriate gas mixes/decompression theory, commercial diving, OSHA regulations, as well as charter boat safety operations. We can determine if the correct safety procedures were followed and whether or not on-hand safety staff had proper training and tools.

Our experts can often determine if an incident was a fault of negligence or a lack of necessary skills and equipment for the dive leader, boat operator, commercial dive control specialist, or the individual diver.
