Expert witness testimony - whether from a physician, engineer or other educated expert - almost always plays a key role in personal injury litigation. In fact, it is absolutely essential in malpractice cases. Such testimony is usually admitted at trial without incident. However, in some cases involving less mainstream scientific evidence, whether such testimony is admitted or excluded can ultimately decide the case.
Are you getting ready to see an attorney for the first time to discuss your injury? You may be uncertain what to expect during that initial consultation and unsure what you should bring. An initial consultation typically involves a conversation between you and your potential attorney, during which you discuss what happened to you, the known extent of your injuries, who you believe is responsible and the outcome you expect from your lawsuit. Besides the interview, you should bring whatever you can to establish that you have a case and to assist your attorney in building a formidable case.
