Industrial Design Expert Witnesses
Industrial design encompasses the design of a product’s form, function and features with the intention of mass production. Depending on the specific product or process involved in the case, an industrial design expert witness typically has extensive experience and expertise in mechanical engineering, ergonomics, product design, biomechanics, user interface design, industrial design, and/or engineering services. Cahn Litigation Services is often called upon to locate expert witnesses that can support industrial design matters and present demonstrative evidence for a case on behalf of the plaintiff or defendant.
Often, matters requiring industrial design expert witness services involve intellectual property, such as a patent infringement case, copyright, trade secrets dispute, or a patent proceeding before the International Trade Commission (ITC). An industrial design expert witness can also be instrumental in a product liability case.
Litigation support by an industrial design expert witness could include failure analysis, an expert report, expert opinion, expert witness testimony, and trial testimony. In a high-profile case, or litigation involving a significant financial stake, counsel may request a subject matter expert with prior expert witness experience. An expert witness needs to not only have expertise but also possess the ability to explain technology and evidence to lay people, such as typical jurors. In addition, clients may seek an industrial designer for pre-litigation consultant work. Whether the case involves product failure, design defect, or intellectual property, Cahn Litigation Services has the experience required to turn an expert witness search around quickly and provide the right balance of expertise and testimony to support each unique project and its nuances.
