When Do You Need An Expert Witness For Cases Involving Property Litigation?

cbeecherClaims Analysis

For many attorneys, hiring an expert witness on a case can be a beneficial tactic. If you are considering hiring an expert witness, here are a few questions to consider:

1. Will your expert witness add value to the case? If you need your witness to perform independent investigations to confirm or disprove already established findings, then an expert witness can be extremely beneficial.

2. Has your potential expert witness worked on similar cases? Here, you are trying to identify if your case warrants an expert opinion. If your witness has not worked on similar cases, you may need to look elsewhere.

3. Does the potential benefit outweigh the costs? By hiring an expert witness, could your case potentially win a larger amount because of the testimony? If so, an expert witness could be necessary to win.
