Overview

The new 1998 edition of the Wiley Expert Witness Update is an essential tool to help personal injury attorneys and trial lawyers understand key issues relating to expert witness testimony that can make or break a case. The 1998 Wiley Expert Witness Update brings you the best thinking and research of top trial lawyers, trial consultants, and medical and insurance professionals including Jeffrey Boyd, Glenn Cahn, Laurence Miller, and Amy Singer. The book is comprised of eight chapters — each examining in-depth legal, scientific, or other practical issues involving experts in personal injury litigation. Rather than limiting its focus on experts' roles as witnesses, this year's Update offers valuable guidance that creative trial lawyers can employ to assess whether, when, and how to obtain quality information from treating physicians and other experts in order to establish facts that prove liability or damages. The 1998 Update helps you keep pace with the rapidly developing body of medical and psychology expertise including: How to use focus groups, litigation intelligence surveys, and other scientific techniques to develop winning trial themes and clearly identify favorable and unfavorable jurors. How to understand the causes and effects of physical injuries and their psychological consequences in a variety of personal injury cases. How to show memory and personality can be affected by traumatic brain injury, including the so-called mild head injury. How to effectively use suicidologists to offer expert opinions on the cause of death in these difficult cases. Personal injury practitioners of all levels of experience will find valuable information and practice tips in the 1998 Wiley Expert Witness Update.
