Exponent, Inc.'s Objectivity Called Into Question by Fair Warning

My office represents plaintiffs in personal injury cases and Applicants in workers' compensation cases. In the personal injury setting, defendants often hire a company called Exponent, Inc. to assist in the defense of such claims. Exponent describes itself as "a multi-disciplinary engineering and scientific consulting firm that brings together more than 90 different disciplines to solve important engineering, science, regulatory, and business issues." However, what is meant by "solving issues;" in my few encounters with the company, I have yet to have a case where Exponent validated the claims that my client was making. Is that a reflection of the validity of those cases or something else? Today, Fair Warning reports on Exponent's close connection with industry and calls into question the objectivity of Exponent's work. (Fair Warning is a nonprofit investigative news organization that focuses on public health, safety and environmental issues and related topics of government and business accountability.) Essentially, the article asserts that Exponent's cozy connection with industry leads to result oriented studies and opinions in litigation matters. Check out the article and let us know what you think: http://www.fairwarning.org/2016/12/exponent/.
