Will I need an expert witness in my case in Florida?
Answer: Whether one needs an expert in their case depends really on the facts in the case. If there is a breath test, an expert can be very useful in evaluating whether the machine was properly working, whether there was anything in your system or in what you did that day that could affect the results of that breath test. In blood cases, an expert is of the foremost importance. We must look at one, how that blood was stored, whether it fermented, whether it’s higher than it normally would have been. So an expert is absolutely valuable in any type of breath or blood case.
