EXPERT EVIDENCE: THE PERILS AND THE PITFALLS: WEBINAR 29th JUNE 2020
The problems that experts can cause in cases (often to the side that instructed them) have been extensively catalogued on this blog over the years. On the 29th June I am giving a webinar on the perils and pitfalls of expert evidence. This will look, in particular at those cases where experts have been criticised and the steps that lawyers can take to minimise the risks of expert evidence going awry.
In a recent case the trial judge said of an expert report was “….one of the most egregious and naked usurpation of the functions of the court that I have ever seen.”
There are numerous cases where the reports and conduct of experts have been subject to severe criticism by judges.
This webinar takes a detailed look at many of these recent cases and the reasons why judges criticise experts, with particular reference to personal injury and clinical negligence actions.
Gordon Exall will cover:
- The rules relating to expert evidence
- Experts on liability, do they help ? Where do things go wrong?
- Experts on damages, why they often can’t help
- Preventing your own expert from harming your case
- Dealing with a “rogue” expert.
