The Law as it Affects the Structural Engineer

Structural engineers appear to have been fortunate enough to stay out of reported litigation. The law as it affects them must be gathered from cases relating in the main to architects and, in some instances, to other professional men. The big principles of duty to the client and to others generally can be stated with some confidence, but their application to any particular set of circumstances always requires much thought and that must particularly be the case here, where one lacks the expression of the courts’ views on the position of the structural engineer.
