Wrongful death cases tend to deal with damages that are not tangible, such as lost of society, loss of companionship, and loss of love. Because of this, it is important that you have expert witnesses who can accurately relay the extent of the non-physical damages you have suffered to a jury while demonstrating the death of your loved one was the result of negligence or reckless behavior.
Expert witnesses, also called judicial experts, are additional witnesses who by virtue of education, training, skill, or experience are considered to have expertise and specialized knowledge that is beyond what an average person would have.
In the court room, they are recognized as having an expert opinion that carries considerable weight and may also deliver expert evidence using facts from the field of their expertise. Opinions offered by expert witnesses can be used to demonstrate negligence in an accident as well as assess damages and costs sustained by the plaintiff.
Because experts and fields of expertise are highly specialized and compartmentalized, it is vital that your attorney has access to the right expert for your case. At Thomas J.
