Safety Expert Witness

safety-expert-witnessAccidents happen everywhere, not only in dangerous environments or during risky activities like construction, roofing, loading docks or scaffolding. Accidents often happen in workplaces, homes, warehouses, other stores and on sidewalks and school playgrounds. Although lack of attention to proper material handling, housekeeping, and merchandising standards may be be factors, often times lack of proper training, warnings or errors in labeling are major contributors to compromised safety. If it comes to a trial regarding these facts, having someone who can testify as a Safety Expert Witness is an excellent asset. Boster Kobayashi & Associates can help you with that.

An Expert Witness is someone who is a specialist in their particular field and is able to present their expert opinion during trial without having been witness to the event relating to the criminal case or lawsuit. The rule against giving an opinion in trial is exempt for Expert Witnesses, so long as the expert is sufficiently qualified. If the expertise is challenged, the lawyer for the party calling the “expert” must show that the witness is qualified through questions in court, and the trial judge can declare that the witness is not an expert or is only an expert in specific subjects.
