Immunity for legal malpractice experts: traditional rule could change

Expert witnesses play an important role in professional malpractice cases, particularly in cases involving technical knowledge that is not readily understandable to the average person, whether judge or juror. In legal malpractice cases, an expert witness can be used by the defendant to provide evidence of the reasonableness of actions or omissions that are alleged to be negligent.
