Selecting an Expert
When selecting an expert, the insurer should consider whether the state where the claim is brought requires that the expert be licensed before the expert can testify. For example, in Illinois, the appellate court in Thompson v. Gordon, 851 N.E.2d 1231 (Ill. 2006) stated that the court should consider the lack of an Illinois license, as well as whether the expert was qualified as an expert based on his knowledge, skill, experience, training, and education and that the expert who is not licensed in the state could face criminal prosecution.
