Engine Control Expert Witnesses
Engine control expert witness candidates typically have extensive experience and expertise in electrical engineering, mechanical engineering, and/or automotive engineering. Representing the plaintiff or defendant, Cahn Litigation Services is often called upon by attorney clients to locate an expert witness to support automotive industry matters including cases involving engine control technology.
The engine control module (ECM), also known as an engine control unit (ECU), constantly monitors a network of sensors around the car to ensure conditions are within normal operating range and with optimal engine performance. When something goes awry, the ECM adjusts conditions or stores a trouble code so it can be diagnosed.
Often, matters requiring engine control expert witness services involve intellectual property, such as patent infringement litigation, inter partes review in the PTAB, or trade secret disputes. A forensic expert can reverse engineer components to prove (or disprove) intellectual property infringement or theft. An expert with specialized knowledge in engine control technology might also provide testimony in a torts matter like personal injury or a products liability case involving failure analysis, or to assist in an accident investigation.
Litigation support by an automotive expert with specific knowledge in engine control could include forensic engineering, claim charts for infringement/non-infringement contentions, invalidity and validity arguments, claim construction hearings (in support of Markman briefs and hearings), accident reconstruction, expert report, expert opinion, and expert testimony at a trial. In a high-profile case, or litigation involving a significant financial stake, a law firm may request a professional with prior expert witness experience. An expert witness needs to not only have expertise, an automotive expert witness must possess the ability to explain expert evidence to a jury. In addition, clients may seek an industry expert for pre-litigation consulting work.
