Axis Consultant, James Naftzger testifies in Slip and Fall case as an expert witness before San Mateo Superior Court. Jury returns a complete Defense verdict for client.

October 19, 2015

James Naftzgter, regional manager and lead consultant with Axis Construction Consulting, Inc., recently provided expert witness testimony in a San Mateo County Superior Court matter. The case involved a claim wherein the plaintiff had a slip and fall in a Redwood City building garage. The plaintiff sued for negligence and premise liability and was seeking over $2M in damages.

Mr. Naftzger investigated the building garage and provided expert witness testimony on behalf of the defense. He demonstrated to the jury that the building was code compliant and the appropriate lighting level were code consistent.

This week counsel advised that jury ruled in favor of the defense and found no conclusive evidence of misconduct by the building owner. The jury verdict resulted in the client paying zero dollars to the plaintiff.

Mr. Naftzger has significant experience and success with handling personal injury claims. He has been retained as the lead consultant and expert witness over 15 times in the last ten years on claims involving personal injury relating specifically to general construction and building code compliance.
