Expert Witness and Drunk Driving Accident

Posted on:2/1/2012
If you have been charged with drunk driving and causing an accident, you will probably need the services of an expert witness to show that your blood alcohol concentration had nothing to do with the accident. There are a few things you should keep in mind when you are choosing an expert witness.


 

First and foremost, an expert must be able to demonstrate specialized skill or knowledge acquired through an appropriate mix of experience or education. Recognized expertise in the subject can be credibly substantiated by the authoring of peer-reviewed papers and books, recognition by peers for contributions to the field over an extended period of time, or other relevant activities recognized and accepted by other experts in the field.

 

To be effective, an expert witness must have the ability to clearly and persuasively explain and communicate complex theories and results through explanation, simplification, and clarification, and by giving examples and analogies.

 

Through actual litigation experience, experts learn what is expected of them as well as what to expect in the various steps of the litigation process. Additionally, lawyers are inclined to depend on experts who understand the litigation process and are able to withstand rigorous critique of their testimony by opposing attorneys hoping to discredit the expert.

 

An expert must be able and willing to commit the time and energy needed to adequately conduct research and to formulate defensible opinions. Experts in the vicinity of the trial location are often more convenient and less expensive due to the absence of travel costs. On the other hand, experts from faraway places may be more impressive.
