Restaurant Expert Witness, Howard Cannon Debunks Common Myth That Company Services Are All About Food

Howard Cannon, America's most visible Restaurant Expert Witness, would like to debunk the common myth that his company's services are all about food.

When you hear the words "Restaurant Expert Witness", what crosses your mind? Most people have never heard of such a thing; but, when they do, they assume that it is always food-related. Howard Cannon, America's most visible Restaurant Expert Witness, would like to debunk that common myth.

"The truth is, that assumption is only partially correct," says Mr. Cannon. "We certainly do provide expert witness services for matters concerning food contamination and food borne illness; but, being a restaurant expert witness also means that we provide expertise in matters relating to premises liability; slips, trips & falls; dram shop & alcohol liability; safety & security; OSHA; ADA; franchise disputes; and much more." Howard adds, "For example, few realize that more than 3 million restaurant, bar, food and beverage industry employees and over 1 million industry customers are injured as a result of slips, trips and falls that occur in restaurants each year alone; and, that's according to the National Floor Safety Institute and the Center for Disease Control and Prevention."

Mr. Cannon's expert witness services provide litigation support, such as unbiased opinions, reports, testimony, consultation, and analysis regarding all areas concerning the restaurant, bar and hospitality business. His more than 26 years of experience enable him to provide a unique perspective to his clients (attorneys, bankers, investors, etc.) - offering an industry insider point of view that might otherwise be overlooked in such matters.
