Expert Witnesses for the Defense

Click to Play Video

In mesothelioma and asbestos cases, expert witnesses are generally brought in by both the prosecution and the defense. These witnesses lend an air of credibility to the respective sides’ positions and can serve to provide the specialized knowledge of medicine and other sciences that is often necessary in proving a successful asbestos claim.

Defense experts in mesothelioma cases are generally very knowledgeable and articulate individuals who can persuade a jury to side with the asbestos manufacturers. It takes a skilled and experienced asbestos lawyer to properly question these witnesses and refute the claims they make. These lawyers must possess a detailed and thorough knowledge of the history of asbestos manufacturing, the medical effects of asbestos fibers, and the use of asbestos products in the area in question. Without that background, they will not be able to successfully argue their client’s case.
