An industrial chemicals expert witness is typically a professional engineer with an advanced degree, possessing extensive experience and expertise in industrial health, environmental health, chemical engineering, and/or is a certified industrial hygienist. Experts in the industrial chemicals field may have an affiliation with industry organizations, such as ASTM, the American Chemical Society (ACS), Society of Chemical Manufacturers & Affiliates (SOCMA), the American Institute of Chemical Engineers (AIChE), or the Society of Chemical Industry (SCI). In a high-profile case or litigation involving a significant financial stake, a law firm may request a qualified expert with prior expert testimony experience.
A subject matter expert in industrial chemicals might be called upon to provide expert testimony in toxic tort litigation cases, an accident investigation, or insurance disputes. Litigation support services by an industrial chemicals expert could include failure analysis, forensic analysis accident reconstruction, exposure assessment, toxicology report review, expert opinion, expert report, and expert witness testimony at a trial.
