In some cases, it is a good idea to have an expert witness testify in order to help explain an idea to the jury. But in many cases, expert witness testimony is an absolute necessity; there are situations where a decision in the plaintiff’s favor would not be valid unless key issues were established by the testimony of an expert witness. Given the importance of experts, here are few tips on what to look for in an expert witness.
Retaining an effective expert witness is an exercise in balance and judgment. An experienced personal injury lawyer draws on a bank of professional knowledge in selecting the ideal witness. For example, an expert who has vast academic experience, like a professor, may not have much experience testifying and handling attacks from opposing counsel. An expert who testifies often may appear to be a “hired gun” who parrots whatever opinion benefits the client.
