Product design expert witnesses are experienced with varying industries, since the process may be different depending on each field. Many mechanical engineering and technological experts are familiar with product design, as the design of machinery and tech-based products are constantly changing at an increasingly fast rate. There are many issues to consider when working in product design, such as biomechanics, functionality, patent laws, and marketing, each of which may become the subject of a product design-related lawsuit due to various unforeseen issues.
Product design expert witnesses with a background in technology often have experience in several areas of the industry, such as hardware design, consumer electronics, OLED displays, interface design, and other such details of electronic equipment. In the product design of commonly used consumer electronics, including cellular phones and other wireless devices, the product design stage must implement patent analysis and licensing, as well as other aspects of marketing and market research. Failing to adequately research similar consumer products may result in issues with trademark infringement, copyright infringement, and other situations involving patent litigation.
Whether it is a product of the mechanical engineering industry, consumer electronics, or other manufacturing fields, product design must incorporate biomechanics for consumer use and eliminate the risk of product defects. Product liability and product failure may become the subject of a lawsuit if the product design stages have violated the codes of compliance of the related industry.
