Finding a medical or dental expert witness will add credibility to any court case, which involves the presentation and analysis of medical evidence. Courts allow medical expert testimony under certain conditions, and all medical expert witnesses must be qualified by the court. Each physician expert witness brings unique expertise, according to his or her area of specialty, and finding the right medical expert witness may be as easy as using an expert witness service.



The testimony of experts is covered in Federal Rule 702. The testimony of experts must be supported
by sufficient facts and data, relying on quantitative, rather than qualitative, analysis. Also, experts must use principles and methodology which are accepted in the scientific community. Acceptable methodology includes maintaining standards and controls, acknowledging the known or potential rate of error, and submitting studies for peer review and publication.



All experts must be qualified by the court. The attorney utilizing the testimony of experts must present witnesses' accomplishments and training, as relates to the subject matter of the case. After the presentation, the opposing lawyer may question the background, training, and skill level of witnesses. When presentations have concluded, the court will rule as to whether to accept the witnesses as experts.



Medical experts may assist during multiple phases of a trial. In a medical malpractice case, for instance, experts may review the case before an attorney presents it to the board, to determine if standards of care were breached. During the trial, then, experts may provide a deposition, which aids in the discovery phase of the case. If the case goes to trial, experts may then testify in court or before the board, offering unbiased, reliable, and accurate analysis.



Dental experts provide specialized testimony. Dental professionals may offer testimony in any case which makes use of dental records. These professionals will be experts in jaw or face pain, restorative dentistry, and oral implants, which may be critical to a civil malpractice case. These professionals may also offer testimony related to related to both forensic dentistry and bite-mark identification, which may be critical to a criminal case.



Most experts possess advanced degrees. Most experts also have an extensive curriculum vitae, based on published articles, research conducted, and classes taught in the field. In court cases, however, communication skills may be more important than credentials. The best witnesses will communicate in clear, everyday language, and will answer only the questions which are asked.



A witness service will choose the most qualified professionals to present to the court. Good services verify a professional's credentials, including education, experience, and academic affiliation. Good services also confirm that the professional communicates well, when giving both written and verbal opinions. In addition, services ensure that the professional understands all aspects of trial procedure, and conducts himself or herself well within the court setting.



From evaluating the merits of a claim, to offering testimony in court, participation from medical experts will add credibility to any case. To look for qualified experts, attorneys may consult a professional association for experts qualified to offer court testimony. Or, to save time, and to assure quality, attorneys may consult a medical or dental witness expert service.
