Expert witnesses in personal injury cases

Headway and the Spinal Injuries Association (SIA) presented an event around the importance of expert witnesses in personal injury cases, supported by Irwin Mitchell, on Thursday 21 April 2016 in London.

This afternoon seminar was aimed not only to increase the knowledge of existing experts, but also to give professionals who may be considering becoming experts an understanding of what is expected of them as an expert witness.

Leading personal injury silk Stephen Killalea QC chaired, spoke and led a mock trial with Dr Brooks. The afternoon included the following sessions:

  • What solicitors want from an expert
  • What counsel wants from an expert
  • The expert witness view
  • Mock Trial: cross examination of an expert witness
  • Panel discussion: what a judge wants from an expert and lessons learned
