One of the Most Frequently Asked Question by Homeowners:
My foundation wall is bowed and has some cracks, who should I contact ?
First thing comes to mind is to contact a foundation and waterproofing company, as most of them would provide a free estimate and while that is not a bad avenue to take I often tell my clients, the reason they provide a free estimate is because they are selling you their product and while most of the time their product could help solve/fix the issue you could be missing out on reviewing the root cause of the problem by a professional (a structural engineer) that is there just to provide you the best possible solution without selling you any product. I can say that a decent amount of consultation/evaluation I provided for similar issues did not require any reinforcement but rather some immediate maintenance work to prevent further movement and cracks.
