Sometimes clients ask about the roles of an expert witness in their case. What do they cost? Where are they from? Will they have one in their file? Every case is different. For example, an economist is helpful if you have a large lost wage or lost benefit component. An orthopedic surgeon as an expert witness would be important if you had a surgery or an orthopedic injury.
For people that were working at the time of the accident and are rendered disabled, an expert in vocational rehabilitation expert or a life care planner are often important to prove what your abilities or inabilities to return to work are, and also, what your life care expenses might be going forward, regarding medications, future therapies, treatments, x-rays every year, things like that.
