An expert witness is a witness, who by virtue of education and experience, is believed to have special subject matter knowledge beyond that of the average person sufficient that others rely on him for his opinions. Typically, experts are relied on by both sides to a dispute for opinions on severity of injury, degree of insanity, cause of failure in a machine or other device, and the like.
