A paint expert witness often provides expertise in intellectual property matters, such as a patent infringement litigation or a trade secret dispute. A paint or coatings expert could also be called in on a product liability case, personal injury incident, or an accident investigation.
What litigation support work might a paint expert witness be expected to perform?
Litigation support by a paint expert witness could include accident reconstruction, forensic engineering, research and authoring expert reports, failure analyses, deposition testimony, providing expert opinions, and courtroom testimony.
