What is an Expert Witness?
An Expert Witness is a fact-oriented individual who can offer testimony based on firsthand knowledge. Usually based on their professional backgrounds, Expert Witnesses have a personal understanding and expertise on the concepts about which they testify. During litigation when the stakes are high, the testimony of an Expert Witness is often a vital part of the legal strategy—especially when quantifying damages. Due to this vital role they play, it is imperative that the selection process used to pick an Expert Witness identifies the best suited individual for the case.
