ATV Expert Witnesses
What is an ATV expert witness?
All-Terrain Vehicle (ATV) expert witness candidates typically have a background in mechanical engineering, automotive design, and/or automotive engineering. For matters related to design and engineering, expert witnesses often have advanced degrees in engineering (PE) or ergonomics/human factors (PhD). In some cases, expertise in the operation, maintenance, and safe handling of all-terrain vehicles is required.
What types of cases require an ATV expert witness?
Often, matters requiring off-road or all-terrain vehicle expert witness services involve intellectual property, such as patent infringement litigation, inter partes review in the PTAB, or trade secret disputes. An ATV vehicle specialist might also provide expert testimony in a personal injury or product liability case, or be called upon as an accident reconstruction expert in an ATV accident case.

What litigation support work might an ATV expert witness be expected to perform?
Litigation support by an ATV expert could include product analysis, accident reconstruction, explanation of owner and manufacturer responsibilities, review of Consumer Product Safety Commission (CSPS) guidelines for use, research, expert report preparation, and expert witness testimony at deposition and trial. Clients may also seek a powersports industry expert with specific knowledge in ATVs for pre-litigation consulting work. In a high-profile case, or litigation involving a significant financial stake, a law firm may request a qualified expert with prior expert witness testimony experience.
