What qualifications should you look for when hiring an expert witness?
“The number one qualification is—’Is this expert really qualified to be in front of a jury and try to explain to them that he actually knows the industry and has experience in the industry, and is not just making up something because an attorney wants him to say something?’
One of the things that sets me apart from some of the other experts that I work with—in addition to my 30+ years work experience as a truck driver, law enforcement officer, and in safety management in the trucking industry—is that I continue to go to seminars and courses in the area of commercial motor vehicle safety.
I keep my finger on the pulse of the industry. A lot of these conferences I go to are where the nuts and bolts of the commercial vehicle safety are discussed and industry decisions are made.
For example the California Trucking Association. I’m actively involved in their safety management council.
The American Trucking Association. I’m actively involved in their safety management council including being a member of their accident review committee.
And then also the North American Transportation Management Institute. You’ll find that on my CV. I’ve been a member for years and I’ve instructed many of their courses.
I keep abreast of everything that I can that will help me understand more what the industry best practices are—state of the art instrumentation and equipment” -V. Paul Herbert
