Hiring the right document examination expert witness is important because documents used for a lawsuit often contain crucial details. Documentation is a valuable form of record in terms of legal claims, so the authenticity of such evidence must be verified before reaching a legitimate conclusion in the event of litigation.
There are various methods of examining documents, including determining the authenticity of handwriting and signature verification. Questioned and fraudulent documents can be detected by verifying the legitimacy of handwriting and whether it matches with the individual said to have written or signed the document. No matter which tool was used, whether it was paper and ink or typewriting, there are methods in place for discovering forgeries and fraud in both current and historical documents, including the examination of paper and ink analysis.
Document examination can be a crucial tool in maintaining identity security, as fraudulent documents can be connected to identity theft, so a document examiner may be needed to verify the disputed authorship of such documents. These methods can also be used to confirm the authenticity of autographs, wills, deeds, anonymous documents or letters, checks, account ledgers, and medical records.
