In most court cases, it is important to have expert witnesses in your corner to back up the claims being made, and the evidence being presented. Sometimes, the facts presented don’t correspond with the evidence, and the variations have to be weeded out. Those with knowledge, experience, and the credentials related to the case at hand may be needed in order to assist in the litigation process as a form of support. All people in the courtroom will most likely not be educated in the areas necessary to come up with an informed judgment, so litigation support is a necessity.
Disputes can occur at any time during the construction process. It can happen right after signing the contract, issues that arise during the construction process or because of performance issues after the job is done.

They have varying opinions of what the causes of the issues are, and who should be responsible for repairing them. This is where hiring an expert with unbiased experience in the field will get you the information you are searching for.

Whether they agree or disagree with what has been said in the courtroom, it is important that they are there to provide an expert opinion, based on facts. There are many different aspects to take into consideration when providing and analysis, especially under oath, so you can rest assured that all answers are accurate and well thought out to the best of the professionals’ knowledge.
In situations where litigation support is needed, the expert will be available to answer the questions of both parties in order to provide a fair and unbiased opinion. The defense and prosecution both have the same opportunity to ask questions regarding the situation, in an attempt to strengthen their case or to simply get the facts to the jury. The expert is not there to favor any particular side and will base their testimony on truths based on their experience and education regarding the topic.
Why are experts called up in court cases to provide litigation support? Because not every professional in the courtroom has the credentials, experience, and knowledge related to the areas in that case. Experts are asked to provide expert analysis in litigation to support or deny findings related to those specifics.
If litigation support is required, experts are contacted and sometimes interviewed to determine if they can provide relevant information related to the facts. If they are hired, both the defense and prosecution have the same opportunity to interview the expert and present findings for their case.
