What is an automotive expert witness?
Automotive expert witness candidates typically have extensive experience in automotive engineering, electrical engineering, mechanical engineering, biomechanics, and/or vehicle manufacturing. Automotive expert witnesses often have advanced degrees in engineering (PE), computer science (PhD), and/or public safety (MSc). In a high-profile case, or litigation involving a significant financial stake, a law firm may request a technical expert with prior expert witness experience.
