Automotive Engineering Expert Witnesses
Automotive engineering expert witness candidates typically have extensive experience and knowledge in the automotive industry, including automotive parts, automotive repair, automotive engineering, crash tests, mechanical engineering, automotive electronics, biomechanics, and/or vehicle manufacturing. An expert witness needs to not only have subject matter expertise, but must also possess the ability to provide expert testimony in such a manner that a jury and judge can understand the evidence.
The automotive industry is one of the world’s largest industries by revenue, and the US is a leader in automotive manufacturing, second only to China. Vehicle safety, automotive design, performance and cost are some of the major elements a motor vehicle manufacturer faces.
To support either a plaintiff or defendant, Cahn Litigation Services is frequently called upon by law firms to locate an expert witness that can support issues involving automotive engineering. An automotive engineering expert witness could provide expertise in intellectual property matters — a patent litigation in federal court or a trade secret dispute. It could be a patent infringement case in the District Court, or a patent case or proceeding in the International Trade Commission (ITC). An automotive engineer might provide expert opinion in a matter like a product liability case, product development, or provide testimony in a personal injury case as a result of an automobile accident. Example projects where Cahn Litigation Services has searched for experts include:
- airbag patent infringement,
- Pennsylvania vehicle crash reconstruction,
- seatbelt design and safety systems,
- automotive design engineering,
- automotive parts failure causation,
- diesel fuel nozzles,
- commercial vehicle stability, and
- automotive trade dress, among many others.
Litigation support services could include an expert report, failure analysis, vehicle accident reconstruction and expert witness testimony. In a high-profile case, or litigation involving a significant financial stake, a law firm may request an automotive expert witness with prior experience as a testifying expert. In addition, clients may seek a qualified expert for pre-litigation work.
