In this video, you will learn all about expert witnesses, what they are and why they are important. There are two kinds of witnesses in the law world, fact witness (who are often referred to as eyewitness) and expert witness. The difference between the two is that fact witness may only describe what they saw and heard without giving an opinion, while an expert witness shares the knowledge they have on certain topics and may give their opinion based on that knowledge.
Expert witnesses are important to a case because they have knowledge that others involved in the case don’t have. They can provide what they know to help everyone else get a better idea of what the truth is and of how to best handle the situation.
Expert witnesses are usually professionals in a certain field or industry, which means their knowledge is credible and their opinions are valued. The video will cover these aspects and others so you can have a full understanding of their role in the legal system.
