Expert Witness

Global Technology Experts can prepare for out-of-court and in-court cases by providing quality engineering and metallurgical evaluations to verify the way in which the accident or failure occurred. This process is known as reconstruction and GTE uses state-of-the-art reconstruction techniques to determine the root cause of the accident or component / assembly failure. Once this information is carefully documented and verified by our technical staff, the information is then used for Expert Witness Testimony.

All of the testimony, presented on the behalf of our clients, is fully discussed with the principal GTE technical staff members. We believe in an unbiased team approach in preparing Expert Witness Testimony for you. In this way, the comments and ideas expressed by GTE technical professionals, in a closed-door meeting, lead to decisive and pinpoint conclusions based on the information collected during the accident reconstruction period and the subsequent evaluation phases.

Our staff has diverse and highly technical backgrounds in the fields of: Mechanical, Civil, Structural, Chemical, Electrical, Aerospace and Metallurgical Engineering. In addition, many staff members at GTE have long-term associations with leading Law Firms, Insurance Companies, Universities, Aerospace and Commercial corporations in the Atlanta, GA area, as well as throughout the United States.

Our Expert Witness Testimony is supported by accident reconstruction and failure mode analysis based on:

· Initial observations and reconstruction of the failed component / assembly
· Documentation of non-destructive, destructive and bench tests
· Coordination of sound and unbiased ways in which the failure occurred
· Professional presentation of the results in mediation sessions or in the courtroom

Some of the products that GTE has litigation and product liability experience with are:

· Bicycles
· Outdoor / hunting equipment
· Electronic devices (such as remote controls, etc.)
· Batteries
· Pressure vessels
