Recreational Vehicle Expert Witnesses
Recreational Vehicle expert witness candidates typically have a deep understanding not only of the recreational vehicle (RV) itself, but also of the market, history, and of developing designs and features. Automotive experts almost always have expertise and a background in mechanical engineering, electrical engineering, human factors, and/or automotive engineering. Representing the plaintiff or defendant, Cahn Litigation is often called upon by law firm clients to locate an expert witness to support RV industry matters.
A recreational vehicle is a vehicle or trailer which includes living quarters and the term encompasses the motorhome, camper van, travel trailer, camper trailer, and truck camper. In the U.S., roughly 85% of RVs are manufactured in Indiana, notably Elkhart County, which calls itself “the RV Capital of the World.”
An expert witness in this field will typically provide expertise in intellectual property matters, such as a patent litigation in federal court or a trade secret dispute. It could be a patent infringement case in the District Court, an Inter Partes Review (IPR) in the PTAB (where the only expert testimony is through a deposition), or a patent case or proceeding in the International Trade Commission (ITC). A recreational vehicle specialist could be called to assist in trade dress, trademark infringement, or counterfeiting matters. An automotive expert might also provide testimony in matters such as a product liability case or an accident reconstruction.
An expert witness is generally the only one in the court who is allowed to provide testimony as to his or her opinion — because it is an expert opinion. Regardless of whether this takes the form of trial testimony, or in an expert report, the engineering expertise and analysis will provide credibility to allow judge and jury to consider the expert’s opinion with the weight it deserves. Cahn Litigation has completed numerous searches for an expert witness in the recreational vehicle area, providing candidates for each case to the specifications provided by the attorney in charge.
Whether it’s for a patent case, or for pre-litigation forensic engineering, Cahn Litigation Services has the experience required to turn the search around quickly and provide the right balance of expertise and testimony to get the job done.
