If you have suffered a personal injury and you are in the process of making a claim, it may be necessary to bring in an expert witness to help validate certain aspects of the claim. This blog will outline everything you need to know about the role of an expert witness and how they could help your personal injury claim.
An expert witness is someone that has specialist knowledge and expertise in a particular area that is brought in to provide a testimony at a trial or legal proceeding. They can come from a wide range of professional backgrounds, with some of the most common being forensics, medical, science, engineering and finance.
The role of an expert witness is to give an unbiased and authoritative opinion based on their expertise relating to the claim in hand. They will review the facts and use their experience to provide insight into the case that is being discussed, helping the jury to understand the case and achieve an overriding objective. They may be asked to elaborate on complicated issues, explain the meaning of technical terms, or offer an independent opinion on the evidence presented.
An expert witness could help add credibility to your personal injury claim. They will break down complicated subject matters and explain them in a way that the judge and jury can understand. They will also give their expert opinion on aspects of the case that may be in question. For example, in a personal injury case, the expert witness might be a medical expert that has been asked to explain the circumstances surrounding the cause of the injury or the long-term impacts of the injuries received.
