The Alpine Engineering Advantage

product liability expert witness

Finding what was the root cause of someone’s injuries that involved a product is one of the most common reasons for needing an expert.  Our experts are adept at accident reconstruction, analyzing data and determining whether there is a product defect.  All our engineering experts are registered Professional Engineers (PEs) and Certified Safety Professionals (CSPs).  This means that they have to have the proper experience to even take the test and then pass a rigorous test to prove their proficiency.  Our mechanical engineers can help determine whether or not the equipment involved in the incident was defective in design, manufacturing or warnings.

While forensic engineering is all some experts do, our experts have extensive industry experience and technical knowledge.  We have designed 1000’s of different pieces of equipment and continue to do so.  Between our experts we have nearly 100 U.S. patents.  Our experts will never take a case that they do not believe in.  We value being able to sit on the stand and believe every word that comes out of our mouths.  This is part of what makes our experts so successful.  If are not convinced of something, we will make that known to you even if it is not what you want to hear.  Our licensed engineers also know the specifics of litigation and what lawyers need from their expert witnesses.  We can provide valuable insights into the machine’s inner workings in an efficient and easy-to-understand manner.

Our Product Liability Experience

Our engineers have worked on numerous product liability involving mechanical products ranging from mixers to garbage trucks and a number of things in-between. One of these product liability cases involved a trailer manufacturer who was using cables as their secondary means of connection rather than chains. The cables were attached to the trailer in a manner that caused the cables to sever if the trailer dropped to the ground, which trailers almost always do if cables are used. This rendered the secondary connection for this trailer useless in the event of a primary trailer decoupling. One of these trailers came decoupled from the vehicle and cut through the cables which allowed the trailer to careen through the barrier and into oncoming traffic. The trailer caused multiple fatalities in this accident. Our expert was able to show that there were a number of safer alternative designs. This case settled shortly after our exert issued his report.
