In claims involving serious injuries, both sides often retain witnesses with professional expertise in medical, engineering, vocational or other fields. Some expert witnesses can help to advance your claim by providing medical or technical analysis. Others can prepare financial reports about losses you may have suffered, such as lost wages, future income loss, lost pension benefits, future cost of medical treatments, etc.
It is to your advantage to have experts in the relevant fields advise you and provide opinions to make sure your losses are properly explored and quantified. Your lawyer will advise you about the types of experts required and help you retain competent individuals in those fields.
