A: Your question remains open for four weeks and is really something on which a Georgia attorney could provide the most meaningful input, in terms of Georgia law governing procedure and evidence. However, as a general matter throughout all jurisdictions, the use of experts is usually dictated by the nature of the matter. If the matter involves an injury, medical experts can testify as to a claimant's disability or permanence of injuries. If a matter involves a building failure, engineering experts can testify as to design and construction. It depends on the complexity of the matter and the demands imposed by opposing counsel in terms of supporting a claim.
