In legal terms, what is considered functional as far as a vehicle is concerned? He testified that the doors are not considered functional? He says that functional parts of the vehicle are the engine, tranny, electrical, etc.
That was their professional. I agree that does not make the vehicle run, but I too believe would be considered functional. They do open and close, which serves as a function, but it protects it's occupants as a shield is my argument, but their expert insists it is not make the truck do what it is supposed to do, which is run, and drive.
Are there anyt specific questions that you would ask their professional and I could tell my attorney to ask at arbitration. My expert was proven wrong on one that that he suggested, in that my truck was a unibody frame. Their attorney made a joke out of my expert and said he is a fool if he thinks my truck was a unibody. I am not sure how much that will discredit my expert. Any ideas if you were my attorney you would use to thow their professsional's credability out the door?
Much of their experts opinions and such came from articles from the internet, of which he didn't cite nor did he know of the author's experiences and training. My attorney drilled him on that, His attorney said mine was harrassing his client because their expert was getting confused and was gettng frustrated and wanted to leave. My attorney said, "sir, you will not leave until we are finished here". After that, his anwers became vague if he answered them at all. His attorney kept saying something like, " objection to form", and he did not answer. That is an awesome idea on the baby in the carseat. Any idea where I might be able to get some answers about the structural integrity of the cab now that it has been cut and welded twice? The body shop that fixed it is protecting themselves by saying they repaired it to standards, but they won't say whether or not it is as safe as it was from the factory. I am saying it is not. And I am arguing that we are talking about the safety of my family, but that question will not be answered until something happens and we are involved in a rollover accident and then it could be too late.
If I have other quesgtions later, will the question go to you or another attorney? If it went to another attorney, is there a way that I could get in contact with you
