PLAINTIFF & DEFENSE EXPERT WITNESS

Mike Panish has been working in the field of construction for over 35 years. As a working member of his construction crews, he was responsible for on- site job safety meetings, group instruction and safe usage of tools and construction methods in all of his companies. Mike is a licensed general contractor, electrical contractor, cabinet and millwork contractor, door, lock and security hardware contractor, and paint & finish contractor in the State of California. His crews have worked consistently without any major injuries or accidents due to the continuous safe atmosphere he has created and maintained on all of his jobsites, workshops and work places.

Mike has been designated by Plaintiff and Defense as construction expert witness in jobsite injury and accident cases resulting from improper or unsafe tool usage, inappropriate safety precautions, and hazardous working conditions. He has been called upon by insurance adjusters and claims representatives to evaluate the jobsite conditions and assist them in determining the reason for the claim or injury. In addition, insurance claims adjusters have called upon him to help them analyze the causation of fires and floods that have resulted from incorrect usage or mishandled tools and equipment. Mike has been an invaluable part of the team representing the Plaintiff when a claim of unsafe and reckless behavior on the part of the employer was determined. His past experience in the trades has allowed his evaluations to carry significant weight during mediations and arbitration hearings. The vast majority of cases where he was the retained expert have settled favorably for his clients.
