How an Expert Witness Strengthens Your Personal Injury Case

Personal injury cases often involve complex medical or scientific facts that the average person cannot analyze on their own. When your personal injury claim goes to trial, an expert witness might be brought in to provide greater credibility to your claim. The testimony given by the expert during litigation can mean the difference between case dismissal and case victory. The right expert witness can be a major asset for your personal injury claim as they have the knowledge that is necessary to explain the evidence and substantiate the injuries.

Having the right expert witnesses can be one of the most important aspects to building a strong personal injury case.

What Is An Expert Witness

An expert witness is a professional who possesses a form of specialized training, knowledge, education, or experience about a specific subject matter. The expert may be called to present his/her expert opinion even though they were not a witness to any occurrence relating to the lawsuit or criminal case.

An expert witness testimony is especially helpful in cases where there were no eyewitnesses present at the scene. Experts will be able to conclude how an accident occurred and how it caused someone injuries.

Which Type of Expert Witness Do You Need For Your Personal Injury Case?

Depending on the nature of your personal injury case, your attorney may advise you to use an expert witness with a specific specialty or knowledge. The specific type of accident and injuries you suffer will determine the type of expert witnesses needed.

Below are some of the most common types of expert witnesses we use for personal injury cases:

What Makes a Good Expert Witness?

Although many factors play into an expert’s effectiveness, you want to find a witness who has the credentials and expertise to be credible to the judge, jury, and opposing counsel. You also want an expert who will be able to clearly communicate opinions to the finder of fact, and who can make complex technical subjects and jargon understandable to people who may have little or no prior exposure to the expert’s area of expertise or its terminology.
