APTA recently developed additional general information for members who may act in the capacity of a fact or expert witness. Reviewing the witness resources may assist in being better prepared when faced with receiving a subpoena or a request to act as a witness. Myriad legal issues come into play and the resources serve to provide information on topics such as qualifications of an expert, compensation, and discovery. APTA also provides a general information page to house existing materials that address a variety of legal matters, such as contracts, informed consent, and advertising.
The expert/fact witness resources were developed in response to RC 22-12, a motion passed by the House of Delegates in June.
