What is an Auto Expert Witness?
An auto expert witness, sometimes referred to as a dealership valuation expert, is an individual with a very specific type of education and experience that pertains to automobiles, the understanding of how they are engineered, how they operate and how to determine their value accordingly. The auto expert also has experience with dealers and the business of owning, running and valuing an auto dealership. That education/experience qualifies him or her to testify about matters that relate to vehicles and transportation in a trial. The article What is an Automotive Expert Witness? states,
“Automotive expert witnesses and other expert witnesses are rarely eyewitnesses to an event. Instead, they represent authoritative voices on technical issues surrounding a trial, especially related to trial evidence. Auto expert witnesses may also be part of a case which may not be a formal trial, but a litigation of an auto accident through the courts.”
What is the Role of an Auto Expert Witness?
A dealership valuation expert plays a crucial role in a trial and can represent either an auto dealership/company or an individual. That individual can be either an auto dealer or a non-business owner.
