Purpose of This Paper

This paper is written for multiple purposes.  First, it hopes to provide to prospective plaintiffs, including subrogated insurers, at least some food for thought in evaluating the accuracy of the opinions expressed in reports they receive from those who would call themselves fire experts.  Second, it hopes to serve a similar purpose with regard to manufacturers and other prospective defendants who receive claims from potential plaintiffs based on those evaluations.  Third, and indulging some reasonable expectation that regardless of their respective evaluations, plaintiffs and defendants will continue to disagree and that lawsuits will ensue, the subject matter of this paper will supply an excellent, skeletal outline for the cross-examination of fire experts.  Merely substituting a question mark for the period following each of the following statements of fire science, for example, will provide litigants and practitioners alike with a helpful tool to evaluate their claims or ultimately determine success at trial.  Proper use of the tool will allow the questioning attorney to achieve the ultimate goal of controlling the adverse party's expert.
