AbstractWhen engineer Gregory Green is hired by an attorney to investigate the cause of a workplace accident that befell the attorney's client, Gregory is not invited to testify as an expert witness. Gregory is sure that they would win the case if he was able to testify as an expert witness, and wonders if he should have advised the attorney to let him testify.
