Becoming an expert witness offers a wealth of opportunities to build your CV, share knowledge about your field, and understand how key issues related to your work play out in real-life legal scenarios. Before accepting an expert witness opportunity, however, it’s important to understand the scope of the work and time involved. Here, we’ll walk through several questions to ask before agreeing to serve as an expert witness.

As an expert witness, it’s your specific expertise that provides an essential service to litigators. In turn, the fees you charge depend on your experience, the specialty required by the hiring attorney, and a number of other case-specific factors. The structure of your fees will also vary based on the type and timing of expert service you are providing. Even your payment forms can vary—regular invoicing and retainer agreements being among the most popular options.

In recent years, technological innovation has both improved and disrupted our everyday lives, especially for those involved in claims and litigation. Recovered data is proving to be more effective in resolving claims and assigning liability, with expert witnesses everywhere welcoming the reliability of such data; however, the quality and volume of data available can at times prove difficult to process.

For professionals looking to expand into expert consultation, it’s important to be aware of the different roles and expert types involved in legal proceedings. An expert’s role can be thought of as a sports broadcaster covering a basketball season. They’re on the sidelines commenting on strategy and helping the audience understand key moments of a live game. They can also offer a more analytical look at a game by offering player or team statistics. Often, they’ll be asked to weigh in on the technical aspects of a controversial foul during the broadcast or on a post-game show where the hosts may challenge their assumptions. And of course, they write blogs and articles to report on season-long game outcomes.

COVID-19 has unfortunately led to many doctors experiencing salary cuts, getting laid off, or struggling to save their practices. Overall demand for doctors through recruiter engagement has declined by over 30% since March. Of independently practicing physicians, over half reported that they were worried about the sustainability of their practices amidst COVID-19. In spite of this, there are some types of jobs and consultant physician work for which the demand is actually increasing because of the pandemic. This includes both clinical and nonclinical opportunities, with a broad range of work settings and organization types.
