Although it is true that an ordinary consumer may, under certain circumstances, be able to form expectations as to the safety of a product, the Appellate Court consistently has held, as in its 2006 decision in Keeney v. Mystic Valley Hunt Club, Inc., that "expert testimony is required when the question involved goes beyond the field of the ordinary knowledge and experience of judges or jurors."
