In personal injury and medical malpractice cases, it is the Plaintiff (injured victim) who has the burden to prove a Defendant is legally liable for causing the accident and the Plaintiff’s resulting injuries and damages. So, a Plaintiff must often hire expert witnesses to help prove the case.
Expert witnesses are typically divided into two (2) categories – experts that offer testimony and opinions about liability issues and experts that offer testimony and opinions about injuries and damages.
There is an old joke in law that an “expert” witness is somebody from out of town that carries a briefcase. However, in reality, it is often difficult to find and hire good expert witnesses. Also, expert witnesses can be very expensive.
Siesky Law Firm routinely hires all different types of experts to help prosecute the law firm’s cases. Some examples of the different kinds of experts hired by the law firm include:
- Semi-Truck accident reconstructionist;
- Vocational expert;
- Forensic civil, mechanical, and electrical engineers;
- Forensic data retrieval experts; and
- Private investigators.
Having a law firm that has the resources to find and secure the proper experts for a given case is important in order to prove and win cases.

The Mock Trial will take place in the United States District Court for the Southern District of Indiana. The Honorable Federal Court Judge will preside over the Mock Trial.
Residents of Southern Indiana will be recruited to serve as “Mock Jurors” and lawyers will be recruited to play the roles of attorneys and witnesses.
The fact pattern for the Mock Trial concerns a real-life accident that involved a farmer operating a farm tractor on a roadway in the evening and an older lady operating a motor vehicle that attempted to pass the farm tractor. The lady was injured, when her vehicle caught the outside edge of the farm tractor’s wheel, and the vehicle then flipped and crashed.
The older lady alleged the farm tractor was not lit properly and did not have the proper reflectors. The farmer alleged the older lady had bad eyesight and simply misjudged passing the farm tractor.
The Mock Trial will serve as continuing legal education for lawyers.
Sometimes on a Friday, we buy and deliver donuts or other treats to people that provide our law firm goods or services as way to say thank you for all the hard work that team does for our law firm.
Isn’t it so nice when, unexpectedly, someone thanks you for your hard work and dedication? Life is so busy that we have found that we must be intentional about taking the time to stop what we are doing and say thank you to the businesses that we rely upon in doing our jobs and helping our clients.
