Machine Safety Expert Witnesses
Machine safety expert witness candidates are typically licensed professional engineers or certified safety professionals with extensive experience and expertise in mechanical engineering, product design, occupational safety, and/or industrial design. An expert witness in machine safety should also be familiar with the hazards addressed in OSHA standards. The chosen expert may be associated with an industry or technical organization, such as the American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME), IEEE, or the National Tooling & Machining Association (NTMA). A machine safety expert witness must not only have the appropriate substantive expertise but should also possess the ability to explain technology and evidence to lay people, including judge and jury.
Frequently, matters requiring machine safety expert witness services involve intellectual property, such as patent infringement litigation, inter partes review or trade secret disputes. A forensic engineer can reverse engineer components to prove (or disprove) intellectual property infringement or theft. A machine safety expert witness might also provide testimony in a torts matter like an accident investigation, or a product liability case involving the failure analysis of industrial equipment or construction equipment. A machine safety specialist could also be called in to consult on technical issues, which could require forensic engineering work.
Litigation support by a machine safety expert witness could include reverse engineering, a risk assessment, accident reconstruction, expert report, expert opinion, and expert testimony in the courtroom. In a high-profile case, or litigation involving a significant financial stake, a law firm may request an expert with prior expert witness testimony experience. In addition, clients may seek a machine safety expert for pre-litigation consulting work.
