Why Do We Need Expert Witnesses, Anyway?
August 13, 2013
Hosted by Dr. Carole Lieberman
With trials becoming ever more present in the news, you're undoubtedly wondering about the expert witnesses who testify. What makes someone an expert witness? Are they just 'hired guns' parroting what the lawyer who retained them wants them to say? How seriously do juries consider their testimony? Today's guest, Stephen Grifka, M.D., President of A Medical Expert Network, and a well-respected expert witness, himself, will take you behind the scenes, as we discuss the role of expert witnesses in Michael Jackson's trial, the NFL traumatic brain injury cases, and more.
