Expert Witnesses

Expert witnesses are professionals who provide testimonies and opinions about their area of expertise. They include medical practitioners, psychologists, economists, and accident reconstruction specialists.

Statute of Limitations

Statutes of limitation usually establish the deadlines for taking your claim to court. This involves the deadlines for filling and filing all the relevant documents.

Strict Liability

This is a legal policy that allows you to impose legal responsibility on another person or organization without finding negligence or fault. For instance, if you are injured or hurt while using a defective product, you may not have to prove that the manufacturer was ignorant to recover the damages. However, they have a duty to manufacture and sell safe products.
