First, I'm not a lawyer and I'm not qualified to give legal advice. What follows is simply common sense.
If you're a plaintiff's lawyer about to square off with the law firm of Smith, Smith and Col. Klink (apparently they also make stunguns), then you need to take proactive steps to short circuit (preempt) the legal tricks used by them. Such as the world-famous Daubert motion.
Call a conference with the court, in the Judge's Chamber, well in advance, and get this matter of "expert" witnesses on the table.
Refer to the AMA conclusion that tasers can cause death, "directly or indirectly". Mention the Canadian $4M Braidwood Inquiry. Note that Kroll, Ho, and even Bozeman (!) are on a list of those that have accepted compensation from Taser International. Read some of Bozeman's more candid quotations. Mention that the Maryland AG found that Taser International has "significantly" understated the risks of taser use.

Frankly, if I read about one more Taser International Daubert motion being accepted by a court, given all the opportunity to preempt it using easily-available hard evidence, then it would be close to legal malpractice by the lawyer that failed to preempt it. It's not that complicated.
