Why Hire a Financial Expert Witness?

In most personal injury or wrongful death lawsuits, an expert witness is be needed to determine the actual financial impact of the case. Significant financial losses, including lost wages and potential future lost earnings, are key considerations in a lawsuit, which may become especially costly when a business owner can no longer run his or her business as the result of incapacity or death. Determining and demonstrating the economic impact of a serious personal injury or wrongful death to a judge or jury is pivotal to winning a case

Whether from cases involving workplace injuries, automobile accidents, medical malpractice or other situations, personal injury or wrongful death lawsuits often involve material demands for damages. When retained by plaintiff, the economic damages expert must make sure claimed damages are not grossly overestimated or based on improper assumptions. When retained by defendant, the economic damages expert must be prepared to highlight such errors in plaintiff’s claims. In all cases, the financial expert witness must thoroughly review the documents available and make reasonable calculations based on this information.

An expert witness testimony can provide a competitive edge in court by providing unbiased, factual analysis and testimony for economic damage estimations. Additionally, a financial expert witness is better able to identify inaccurate calculations or inappropriate assumptions made by the opposing damages witness.
