Expert Witness Testimonials
I recruited Eric in November of 2023 as a product design expert witness where Jacoby and Meyers represented the plaintiff in a furniture injury case. Eric was a great fit because of his significant furniture design, development, manufacturing, and product testing experience. He was able to quickly develop a strong grasp of the case materials. He worked cooperatively with myself and our other attorney on the team as well as another technical expert. His solid preparation yielded a Summary of Opinions that did not overlap with the case’s other technical expert and Eric delivered strong well-founded opinions.
Eric testified in the case’s deposition showing his strength as an expert by using his communication skill and maintaining a very professional demeanor. When pushed by the defense counsel during deposition, Eric came back unruffled with additional content to refute the defense counsel’s assertions. During deposition Eric was able to opine on the existing product design flaws and the lack of warnings. He also provided alternative safer product designs with reasonable manufacturing cost implications.
The case settled favorably for our client due notably to Eric’s work. I will recommend Eric be brought in on future product liability cases at our firm and will recommend him to my colleagues at other firms as well.
