What’s an Expert Witness?
It's "Ask the Attorney" Friday with Colorado's Best Attorney Phil Harding. You hear about expert witnesses all the time, but who are they and what do they do? They can range from your treating doctor, to chiropractors and engineers. There are two types of experts, non-retained and retained. Non-retained experts would be a treating provider, dentist, physical therapist, etc. A retained expert is a hired gun. Attorneys make sure they get the right expert for the situation.
