The Expert Witness: Building Credible Testimony for your Legal Case

An expert witness is key in accurately reporting the weather’s impact in a court case. Mark McGinnis provides credible objective testimony on weather for a variety of legal cases from auto injury and accident cases to slip and fall and personal injury cases. Whether you’re the defendant or the plaintiff, hiring an expert witness who is also a Certified Consulting Meteorologist gives your case a huge boost.
But what exactly does an expert witness do?
What is an Expert Witness?
An expert witness provides testimony during a legal trial or research before trial. This person specializes in a specific field of study. An expert witness researches and builds evidence and then presents an opinion based on the facts and evidence. A forensic meteorologist expert witness, for instance, has extensive experience with the study of meteorology and weather forensics and is certified to present findings regarding the case.
Mark McGinnis is an expert witness who uses his knowledge as a Certified Consulting Meteorologist to provide objective testimony for defendants and plaintiffs regarding their legal cases. The correct path to move forward in your litigation can be influenced by storms, wind, hail damage, rainfall, downbursts, snow, ice and temperature. You’d be surprised by the magnitude of the impact weather has on a number of criminal and civil cases, such as:
- Car accidents
- Slip and fall cases
- Personal injury cases
- Traffic accidents
- Construction lawsuits
- Wrongful death
- Bus accidents
- Boating accidents
Any type of weather related accidents require an expert witness to try in court. It’s easy for the defendant or the plaintiff to build a case based on plausible deniability if you do not bring enough evidence to your trial.
Don’t go to trial unprepared. An expert witness works to clearly interpret the weather's effect on a case. The case is incomplete without expert witness testimony.
