Hydraulic Engineering Expert Witnesses
Hydraulic engineering expert witness candidates are typically professional engineers with expertise and extensive experience in civil engineering, mechanical engineering, geotechnical engineering, environmental engineering, fluid mechanics, and/or hydrology. In a high-profile case, or litigation involving a significant financial stake, a law firm may request a subject matter expert with prior expert witness testimony experience.
In hydraulics-based systems, movement is produced by pumped liquid, such as water or oil. Example cases that would require a professional with expertise in hydraulics could involve construction equipment, industrial machines, hydraulic jacks, hydraulic fluid, and hydraulic presses. A hydraulics consultant could also provide expertise for cases involving water distribution and collection systems, storm drain system, sediment transport, flood damage, or dam design.
Legal cases and projects involving hydraulics technology that Cahn Litigation Services locates expert witnesses for often involve intellectual property, such as a patent infringement case in district or federal court, inter partes review in the PTAB, or trade secret disputes. A forensic engineer can prove (or disprove) intellectual property infringement or theft. A subject matter expert in hydraulics might also provide expert testimony in a product liability, design defect, or personal injury case. Expert witness services by a hydraulics expert could include forensic engineering, failure analysis, accident reconstruction, depositions, expert opinion, and expert testimony at a trial. Attorneys also frequently utilize the expertise of a civil engineer or mechanical engineer with specialized knowledge in hydraulics for pre-litigation consulting services. Exemplary cases have included:
- Connecticut floodplain site development dispute representing insurance companies,
- groundwater pollution in Colorado,
- rural Pennsylvania stormwater management,
- Ohio development wastewater master planning,
- engineering services to support a case encompassing culvert construction defects, and
- New York water resources.
Cahn Litigation Services has the many years of experience needed to turn the search for a hydraulics expert around quickly.
