What is an Expert Witness?

An expert witness is a person who has sufficient knowledge of their area of expertise to qualify them to present their opinion in legal matters.


A qualified expert witness can come in many forms and an expert witness can be qualified to give their opinion in a wide range of subjects.

Expert Witness - Painkillers

An expert witness has a duty to the court to provide a full and accurate answer on any questions that may arise over a client’s injuries. Whilst Dr Zafar is examining the client and formulating his expert witness opinion, he is always conscious of the need to be caring and open to make his clients feel at ease.


A medical expert witness can be used in personal injury claims to write a report on a patient’s injuries. The expert witness will only be able to comment on symptoms that he is qualified to form an opinion on and will have to refer the client on to another specialist expert witness for the symptoms he can not comment upon.


As Dr Zafar is a General Practice expert witness, he can form an expert witness opinion on a very wide variety of symptoms and their related impacts on a client’s life. This ensures that the vast majority of clients will not need to see another expert witness to complete their claim.
