Parachuting Expert Witness – In all developed systems of law, the evidence of expert witnesses can be crucial to the outcome of a dispute. Nowhere is this more so than in the United Kingdom, where expert evidence has been adduced in court cases since at least the 15th century. Nowadays, it may be required in both civil and criminal proceedings, as well as in arbitrations, before specialist tribunals and for public or parliamentary inquiries. We have assisted the courts in criminal and civil cases involving civilian and military parachuting.
Selecting an expert witness
When selecting the appropriate expert, it is important to be clear about your requirements. It would help if you considered the following, and as you will see under qualifications and history, we have it all:
Academic qualifications and Memberships:
BPA-British Parachute Association (Now British Skydiving), USPA-United States Parachute Association, CAA-Civil Aviation Authority, SIGMA-Tandem Manufacturer recognised course
We can provide previous experience to the solicitors of past expert witness cases where we have assisted the court to a conclusion – See Case files.
Preliminary report – We usually get approached to write an introductory essay. This early stage will be for the client’s sole use and legal advisers’ exclusive use. Opinions expressed in such a report may well determine whether the case proceeds. For that reason, we base it on a thorough assessment of the available evidence so we can state our views as fully and frankly as possible. It may be that this is as far as the dispute gets taken. However, if the case is decided to proceed, the action will progress through certain well-defined stages.
Our fees are in our terms and conditions, which will be supplied to the solicitor upon request.
