Need an Expert for a Conveyor Systems Case?
There are many factors that need to be understood and taken into account when an accident with a conveyor system occurs. Finding the right conveyor system expert witness can be difficult, but there are some things that you should be looking for. First, a conveyor system expert witness needs to understand how a conveyor system works from a mechanical standpoint. This usually means that they have worked with, repaired or designed conveyor systems in the past. Second, they need to understand the safety regulations that are in place to allow safe operation of the conveyor system. This means understanding the OSHA regulations as well as any other industry regulations involved.

Our Experience With Conveyor Cases
One of our experts was retained in a conveyor system lawsuit that involved machine guarding in particular. In this case, the plaintiff was repairing a conveyor belt on a system for a very large company. After the belt had been replaced it was making some noise, so he was banging around on the system a little bit to see if he could find out where the noise was coming from. One of the guards dropped causing the plaintiff to shield his head with his arms. As he put his arms up to protect his head, his arm was pulled into the machine and mangled quite badly.
Our expert was able to bring to light some flaws in the design of the guard and the case settled.
