Design defects expert witnesses may be highly relevant to product liability cases or construction defect cases, as design defects may occur in a variety of industries. Design defects expert consulting may provide valuable information for cases involving such areas as the automotive industry, mechanical engineering, architecture and construction, human factors, industrial design, HVAC (heating, ventilation, and air conditioning), energy conservation, civil engineering, structural engineering, electrical engineering, software, hardware, medical devices, biomechanics, and other products of design and engineering.
Unlike problems occurring due to a misuse by the consumer, design defect expert witnesses are sought out for cases resulting from product defects made by the designers and manufacturers. Design defect expert witnesses may be called upon for a case to provide an expert opinion based on a failure analysis as a means of determining who or what was responsible for the design defect in question. Design defects may also lead to safety violations, especially regarding automotive design and industrial machinery, the results of which may require an accident investigation and reconstruction to identify the offending design flaw.
Design defect expert witnesses often have experience with various facets of the construction and architectural industries, as design defects in these areas may result in problems with building code compliance, as well as other structural and safety violations.
