When a defective product causes harm, most victims feel that they are alone in their quest to resolve the situation. It seems as if no one understands what you are going through. We agree that these feelings are sometimes unavoidable, but with a pragmatic approach, you can find many people who are dedicated to supporting your cause.
The important role one or more expert witnesses fill in product liability claims cannot be understated. Having an expert validate what you have been saying all along not only makes you feel better--it adds incredible strength to your entire case. Unfortunately, the average person living and working in Pennsylvania has no idea where or how to secure expert testimony.
Experienced injury attorneys have access to a network of professionals that can strengthen product liability claims. As you might expect, expert witnesses are some of the most valuable members of this professional network. Depending upon the product that caused your injury, a lawyer can arrange for experts to testify on your behalf.
The types of experts that can add testimony to your case include medical professionals such as physicians and nurses to discuss the nature of your injuries. Engineering experts can also improve your case by discussing what caused the product in question to malfunction and result in harm. Examples of good engineering experts include mechanical engineers, safety engineers and electrical engineers.
The main takeaway here is that no one expects you to navigate your claim alone. Expert witness testimony is a privilege that all victims can and should take advantage of to improve their odds of success.
