BFPA – A source of technical expertise and expert witnesses

01 April, 2016

Among the many every day devices where hydraulic and pneumatic systems are used are bin lorries, lifts in shopping centres, road sweeping machines, vehicles and fork lift trucks. As in any other industry, the failure or misuse of machinery which use fluid power systems can have potentially severe safety and legal implications for those companies involved.


In legal cases where the operation of hydraulic or pneumatic power is under question, it makes sense to have access to an independent expert witness with sufficient expertise to answer questions definitively wherever possible.

The BFPA maintains close relations with a number of industry experts and can therefore refer interested parties to a selection of expert witnesses, many of whom have spent a lifetime in the relevant part of the industry and operate independently and are therefore able to offer an impartial view. The BFPA is also listed in the Expert Witness Directory as the first point of call in the UK for interested parties needing expert advice on hydraulic or pneumatics.

Once such BFPA expert witness consultant, Stephen Barrett, recently commented: “For legal cases where one party is arguing that the other is at fault and vice versa, solid technical advice can be of crucial assistance. The more plausible your expert witnesses, the better the likelihood of winning your case.”

If you think that independent expert advice on fluid power systems might be helpful to your company, please call the BFPA on 01608 647900 or Email: enquiries@bfpa.co.uk.
