Fleet Management Expert Witnesses
Matters requiring the expertise of a fleet management expert witness include intellectual property lawsuits, breach of contract disputes, import/export cases involving the International Trade Commission (ITC), assisting law enforcement with accident investigations, or regulatory compliance issues. Litigation support by a fleet management expert witness could include arbitration, an inspection of fleet vehicles, an expert report, depositions, and expert witness testimony in court. In addition, clients may seek a transportation industry expert for pre-litigation consulting work.
Fleet management encompasses several modes of transportation including commercial motor vehicle, private work vehicle, ship, rail car, and aircraft. Functions and responsibilities cover everything from vehicle leasing and financing, vehicle maintenance, supply chain management and vehicle telematics, to driver management and fuel management. There are several organizations overseeing fleet and transportation safety including the Department of Transportation (DOT), Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA), and the Network of Employers for Traffic Safety (NETS).
