In cases where a person’s mental state is an important factor in a case, enlisting an expert witness can help to assess and highlight any potential links between someone’s behaviour and their frame of mind.

Year on year, technology has only grown and advanced, seeing an increase in online crimes. As technology has changed, so has the way crime has been committed - and the way in which it is investigated.

So, you followed the advice in Part 1 over at the White Coat Investor and you talked to your colleague who does medical expert witness work. You even created a fee-schedule and a CV to send to an attorney’s office after your colleague sent you a potential case. To your surprise, they actually said yes. You request a retainer, and they comply. It all sounds great, but now what?

The role of an expert witness is to present unbiased testimony that helps the fact finders understand technical or complicated issues at hand in a case. Although it may be tempting to use a heavy hand when preparing your experts to testify in court—particularly for those experts who are new to the litigation process—it’s imperative to avoid “coaching” your expert to adjust their opinions in a way that benefits your case.
