OPINION filed: We REVERSE the district court s exclusion of the Plaintiffs expert witnesses, Dr. Radcliffe and Dr. Crimp. Because exclusion of the expert witnesses was inappropriate, we also REVERSE the grant of summary judgment on the design defect, manufacturing defect, and failure to warn claims. We AFFIRM the district court s exclusion of evidence of allegedly similar incidents. This case is REMANDED to the district court for further proceedings consistent with this opinion. Decision not for publication. R. Guy Cole , Jr., Circuit Judge; Bernice Bouie Donald, Circuit Judge and Thomas B. Russell (AUTHORING), U.S. District Judge for the Western District of Kentucky, sitting by designation.
