In our office, we have many ways to find the right experts. We belong to state and national plaintiff attorney organizations that have databases of various experts. Those organizations also have scouting reports on the experts who tend to testify mostly for defense attorneys. We also have a network of fellow plaintiff Ohio accident lawyers that we consult with on a regular basis to find the best experts.
In one case, we hired an expert on a complicated liability issue. As the case progressed, a different issue emerged as the central theme of the case. The original expert referred us to the preeminent expert in the United States on the key issue. The second expert’s testimony essentially forced the defendants to pay our client a large settlement to resolve the case.
