Forensic Expert Witness

Law enforcement, attorneys and other individuals involved in legal proceedings may need the services of various experts to assist in their case. There are several types of forensics experts and depending on the case, a board-certified forensic pathologist may be the ideal expert for forensic matters related to a case. A forensic pathologist has the training and expertise in a number of forensic disciplines including autopsy, interpretation of injuries and injury patterns, human disease processes, toxicology, evidence interpretation and medical record review among other aspects. An experienced forensic pathologist will usually have previously testified in court on a number of occasions and should be well versed in the court proceedings, how to interact with attorneys and the ideal way to convey information to the jury and judge during witness testimony.
