Microwave ovens become the subject of a court case due to various reasons. Microwaves utilize electromagnetic radiation to generate heat for preparing food products. It may cause unforeseen injuries, burns, or fires if not properly managed or manufactured. Microwave oven expert witnesses are knowledgeable in the science behind microwave ovens and can therefore offer an expert opinion in the event of a microwave oven-related lawsuit.
Lawsuits in this area may be related to issues with microwave drying, microwave burns, microwave injuries, and microwave fires. When heating microwave food, it is very important to use the appropriate microwave cookware, as heating cookware that is not safe for the microwave may result in fires and other such problems. In the event that a microwave oven does cause a fire, a fire cause and origin investigation may be required to determine the source. As with any type of accident involving a mechanical device, an accident investigation and reconstruction may be evaluated by a microwave oven expert witness.
Microwave oven expert witnesses may also be experienced with patent laws, as the appliance is very common and therefore susceptible to issues with intellectual property. The product design, product development, and product liability of microwaves and microwave packaging may all be considered in cases involving product defects, as well as microwave patents.
