Be True to Yourself if You’re Going to Serve as an Expert Witness

Be True to Yourself if You’re Going to Serve as an Expert Witness

The medico-legal expert witness space appears to have started to
become rather crowded in recent years, with an increasing number of
health professionals believing this to be a desired area of practice,
some virtually immediately postgraduation. As the pool of alleged expertise
grows however, so too do the risks to the reputation of the professional
domain under which an expert is registered and the quality of the
evidence provided if the duties of an expert witness are not properly
respected and understood.
