In a personal injury accident case, not all witnesses that you and your lawyer may rely on to provide evidence will be people who were present at the event. In this instance, witnesses are also experts who can provide insights based on their knowledge or expertise about specific aspects of your case.

Having an expert witness is not required in a personal injury case, but you can benefit from having one. He or she can strengthen your claim. There are other ways in which an expert witness adds value to your claim, such as:
- Providing expert analysis, review and investigation that is relevant to the case
- Offering opinions, based on the evidence and their knowledge
- Clarifying complicated aspects of the case to make them easier for the court to understand
