What is a transportation expert witness?
Transportation expert witnesses typically have experience in accident reconstruction, supply chain management, transportation engineering, logistics, vehicle safety, and/or have expertise in a transportation industry mode (e.g., air, railroad, automobile, trucking, maritime). A Department of Transportation expert witness will have experience in DOT compliance and safety. Further, DOT expert witness expertise in commercial trucking, DOT regulations, traffic control, and traffic engineering may be required in some cases. Transport expert witnesses may hold advanced degrees (PE, PhD) or are members of the Institute of Transportation Engineers or the American Public Transportation Association.
What types of cases require a transportation expert witness?
Matters requiring the expertise of a transportation expert witness might encompass intellectual property, breach of contract, or import/export cases involving the International Trade Commission (ITC).
