Commercial Air Transportation Expert Witnesses
Commercial air transportation expert witness candidates typically have a background in aviation law, aircraft maintenance, FAA regulations, and/or have experience as a commercial airline pilot. In a high-profile case, or litigation involving a significant financial stake, a law firm may request an aviation consulting authority with prior expert witness testimony experience. A commercial aircraft expert witness needs to not only have expertise in the subject, but must also possess the ability to explain evidence to a judge and jury.
What are examples of air transportation litigation?
Example cases requiring commercial air transportation expert witness services involve intellectual property, such as patent infringement litigation, or trade secret disputes. Forensic engineering of components can prove (or disprove) intellectual property infringement or theft. A specialist in commercial air transportation might also provide expert testimony in a product liability case involving failure analysis, or be called upon to testify in an aviation accident investigation. Litigation support by an aviation expert witness could include reverse engineering, writing an expert report, depositions, and courtroom testimony. In addition, clients may seek an aviation industry expert for pre-litigation consulting work. Attorney clients call on Cahn Litigation Services when an aviation case requires an expert witness.
