DescriptionJim Wiethorn has been involved in the design, construction, and evaluation of residential, commercial and industrial buildings since 1973. His experience has included evaluation and assessment of damage and failure of all construction types and systems, in particular, crane accidents.

In 1987, Wiethorn went to work for Haag Engineering Company, the oldest forensics firm in the nation. He has been involved in over 350 cases involving crane failures, both nationally and internationally. Whenever a crane failure occurs, he is nearly always involved as he is one of the three foremost experts in the world. Some of the most publicized cases he has investigated include the Miller Baseball Park roof/crane collapse in Milwaukee; the Jack Breslin Center roof/crane collapse in East Lansing; the Maumee River Bridge launching girder collapse in Toledo; and the Hoover Dam Bypass Bridge cableway collapse. In addition, he has served in a myriad of construction litigation cases involving crane failures, building collapses, foundation failures, damage assessment of wind vs. wave, as well as product liability of various construction materials.
