Expert Witness Testimony
EAG’s professional scientists and engineers offer consulting services and expert witness testimony. With a focus on critical issues affecting our client’s business, we serve as independent advisors, bringing new perspectives and experiences for problem solving. Our consulting services include recommending different testing methods and procedures, defining research protocols or investigating causes of product failures. Clients can benefit from EAG’s deep levels of experience and our network of laboratories and consultants.
We also offer consulting and expert testimony services for legal challenges. EAG experts have provided scientific testimony in depositions and trials. We understand the importance of clear communication in scientific expert presentations, and are skilled in explaining technical methods and results in clear and understandable terms. From investigating defective aircraft landing gear to determining cause of airbag failures, EAG’s engineers and scientists have been at the forefront of providing scientific expertise, data interpretation and expert testimony for hundreds of legal cases.
From our locations formerly known as SEAL Laboratories and Chemir Analytical Services, our engineers and scientists have years of experience providing litigation support. They have worked on both product liability and patent infringement cases, providing design of investigations, testing, data analysis and expert witness support.
