In August of 2010, the United States Court of Appeals Sixth Circuit heard a case that involved a car accident and the issue of expert testimony was the focal point. (See Rose v. Truck Centers, inc., 2010 WL 3069613 (C.A.6 (Ohio))).
In Rose, the truck driver and passenger brought a products liability car accident lawsuit against the manufacturer of the steering gear. The truck driver lost control of the truck when the truck began “freewheeling.” The lower court dismissed the case and this Appellate Court sustained the lower court’s ruling. The reasoning is as follows.
