We provide high quality and cost-effective expert witness reports in all fields of mechanical handling equipment and vertical transportation equipment, to include lifts, escalators, moving walkways, cableways and cable car systems.
LECS UK is extensively consulted as expert witnesses by solicitors, loss adjusters and insurance companies in claims arising from personal injury accidents, allegations of defective installation, allegations of patent infringement, contractual disputes to deficient counsel from advisors,. Our experience also includes acting as a single joint expert under the requirements of civil procedure rules.
Our bespoke engineering expert witness service can range from brief advisory services to preparing extensive expert reports and giving evidence in court or a tribunal.
Many cases are settled before trial, regretfully some are not and an expert witness is required to be cross-examined on their written evidence. Generally, our expert opinion can assist solicitors in bringing a case to a conclusion before trial is reached.
