Fire alarm system expert witness candidates are typically licensed professional engineers with extensive experience and expertise in mechanical engineering, product design, fire safety, and/or fire protection engineering. An expert in fire alarm systems should also be familiar with applicable building code mandates. The chosen expert may be associated with an industry or technical organization, such as the Automatic Fire Alarm Association (AFA), Electronic Security Association (ESA), or the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA). In a high-profile case, or litigation involving a significant financial stake, a law firm may request a fire safety professional with prior expert witness testimony experience.
Frequently, matters requiring fire alarm system expert witness services involve intellectual property, such as patent infringement litigation or trade secret dispute. A forensic engineer can reverse engineer components to prove (or disprove) intellectual property infringement or theft. A fire alarm system expert witness might also provide testimony in a fire investigation, or a product liability case involving fire system component failure analysis. Litigation support by a fire alarm system expert witness could include reverse engineering, an expert report, expert opinion, and expert testimony in the courtroom. In addition, clients may seek a fire protection system expert for pre-litigation consulting work.
