Engineering Expert Witnesses
What is an engineering expert witness?
Engineering expert witness candidates are typically licensed professional engineers with areas of expertise covering mechanical engineering, civil engineering, metallurgical engineering, electrical engineering, structural engineering, geotechnical engineering, biomechanics, automotive engineering, and/or forensic engineering. Engineering expert witnesses have advanced degrees (PE, PhD, MD) and years of experience in their specialty field.
What types of cases require an engineering expert witness?
An engineering expert could provide expertise in intellectual property matters, including patent infringement or a trade secret dispute. It could be an Inter Partes Review (IPR) in the PTAB (where the only expert testimony is through a deposition), or a patent case or proceeding in the International Trade Commission (ITC). An engineer might provide expert opinion in a matter such as a product liability case, accident investigation, or provide testimony in a personal injury case.
