Expert Witness V



Expert Witness V – 1.5 Contact Hours
The case-in-chief is Associate Ind. Contractors v. Fleming Engineering, North Carolina Court of Appeals, 2004. What happens when the professional service provider’s services are so careless that even non-professionals can recognize the negligence? Are expert witnesses still needed to identify that the professional has fallen below the standard of care? This case looks at that question in the context of an engineering firm providing construction layout services for a building contractor. This is a 2-Page Letter covering 1 Court Opinion consisting of 12 pages. This 14-Page document has a 10-Question examination based on the text of the newsletter and the case-in-chief with a focus on the expert witness testimony.
