In many personal injury cases, expert witnesses are called on to testify on behalf of one or both sides of a claim. An expert witness is a person who has more knowledge about a certain subject or field than an average person. Selecting a credible and reliable expert witness may significantly improve your case; however, a discredited expert witness may damage your case.

If you are considering filing a personal injury claim, you will need the help of an experienced Oklahoma attorney to receive the compensation you deserve. Contact the Abel Law Firm today by calling (405) 239-7046 to schedule a free initial consultation.

The Purpose of Expert Witnesses

Having an expert testify on behalf of your case can strengthen your argument and increase your chances of establishing negligence. Examples of frequently called-upon experts include:

  • Engineers (mechanical or other) who may be able to analyze the accident scene and determine what factors contributed to the accident and subsequent injury. Generally, they will be used to testify that a machine was improperly maintained or that necessary safety precautions were unheeded.
  • Doctors or specialists who may testify about the extent of your injury.
  • An accountant can speculate about the financial losses from an accident, including medical expenses and wage losses.

Although you are not required to have an expert witness testify on your behalf, they may significantly increase your chances of winning. Additionally, the opposing side may also recruit an expert for rebuttal.
