Are You Getting the Most Out of Your Expert Witnesses?

October 7, 2016

We have all heard the expression, “Just the facts, ma’am.” But nowadays, simply presenting the facts in a case is not enough.

Litigation has become increasingly expert-driven as defendants look for opportunities to shift the blame or lessen the exposure by presenting alternate and/or additional theories to a jury. Each of these theories requires the retention of an expert witness and oftentimes a full team of experts, who each provide relevant testimony to satisfy the applicable burden of proof on a case.

Construction forensics and expert witness services have been an important part of the VERTEX business from the beginning, and many of us have been involved in this type of work for decades. VERTEX offers Standard of Care, Delay, Damages, and Environmental Expert Witness solutions. At VERTEX, we have learned first-hand that the way attorneys and experts work together is critical to preparing the case for trial and is often the determinative factor in becoming the prevailing party.

VERTEX offers accredited training on a myriad of topics surrounding construction, engineering, and environmental practices. We present specific best practices to enhance the use and effectiveness of expert witnesses, including such critical factors as getting a budget, involving the expert early on, providing timely information, preparing the expert for deposition, and weighing the costs and qualifications of the expert. Contact us for further information about our accredited content.
