In litigation, personal injury refers to any type of injury afflicted on the body. Since this term encompasses such a wide array of situations, the expert witness selected for each case will depend on the particular details of the lawsuit in question.
Because a personal injury involves bodily harm, medical experts are often called upon to evaluate the level of injury in question and whether it is grounds for a valid claim. The expertise of a medical expert can confirm many of the claims made in a lawsuit involving personal injury, such as whether the injured individual was/is able to work, if the injury could have occurred as described, what/who is responsible, and issues involving healthcare insurance and additional medical costs.
An expert in worker’s compensation insurance is also relevant to many personal injury cases, as the injury might have occurred as a result of work-related activities. A workplace personal injury can mean the economic loss of the individual is the responsibility of the employer or the employer’s insurance. Premises liability may also be relevant to such lawsuits if the location is determined as a causing factor in relation to the personal injury.
