What is an Expert Witness?
An expert witness is a witness, who by virtue of education, training, skill, or experience, is believed to have knowledge in a particular subject beyond that of the average person.
Expert witnesses and legal experts are officially and legally relied upon to provide a specialized scientific, technical or other opinion about an evidence or fact issue within the scope of their expertise. Their opinion is referred to as their expert opinion, as an assistance to the fact-finder. Expert witnesses may also deliver expert evidence and provide testimony about facts from the domain of their expertise.
