Sports equipment expert witnesses are sought out for several types of cases, since sports equipment-related litigation may pertain to a wide range of issues. Sports equipment expert consulting provides valuable insight for cases involving such areas as mechanical engineering, sporting goods design, human factors, ergonomics, engineering, physical education, athletics, sports and recreation, fitness equipment, exercise physiology, sports injury, risk analysis, premises liability, physical therapy, exercise equipment, athletic training, fitness centers, aquatic safety, biomechanics, and many other related disciplines, each of which may be at the focus of a possible court case involving the use of sports equipment.
Since sports equipment is commonly used in recreational settings, many sports equipment experts will have strong knowledge of premises liability, whether it concerns the use of a fitness center, gym, sports arena, swimming pool, playground, ski resort, golf course, or other type of sports-related environment. In the event of a sport equipment accident, sports equipment expert witnesses are called upon to provide an expert opinion based on a failure analysis as a means of determining the source of the incident in question, whether it is due to a product defect, a problem with human factors, faulty safety equipment, or other type of issue. Sports equipment experts may also have a focus in sports management, personal injury, sporting events, slips trips and falls, sports medicine, or other sports-related discipline.
