Expert Witnesses for your Injury Case

Although many cases settle out of court, we at von Magdenko & Associates, PLLC, are prepared to go to court, to fight for what you deserve. If your case does not settle and you need to file a lawsuit. One of the most important parts of your case, is having an "Expert" testify on your case. There are two major Experts that your Las Vegas Personal Injury Lawyer may retain.

The first major Expert, may be one in a specific field of expertise for how you sustained your accident. For example, if you were injured as a result of a defective product, your Las Vegas Accident Lawyer would retain an Expert Engineer to help prove your case. The Expert Engineer would review the case, prepare a report and provide testimony on their findings to support your case.

The second major type of Expert your Las Vegas Injury Attorney may retain, is an Expert Economist. If you are so severely injured that you can no longer work, your past lost wages and loss of what is called "earning capacity" i.e. what you would have made in the future, had the Las Vegas accident had not occurred, would be addressed by the Expert Economist. Next time we will discuss why it is important to keep your medical appointments.
