less than 4.5 is on. Supplemental reports
in this video will cover the role and tact of supplemental reports.
There isn't any slide for this
module for this lesson because we're going to talk about the role intact of supplemental reports
in a very brief overview, because supplemental reports are just that they supplement the existing information that you've provided.
They may be done so that you can rebut something that the opposing expert has said
to clarify facts that may not have been clear from your original report. To amend or add additional facts based on additional analysis that's been done, or to simply correct the record
the official record
and allow you to testify fully two items you intend to testify to.
The supplemental report, just like the expert report, should have a very defined format. It should be very professional.
It may oftentimes include,
um, the case caption would be
put in very formal
but these reports are no different. It shouldn't be it treated any different than the original expert report that you wrote.
You wanna make sure that you don't use absolutes. You wanna make sure that you stick to the facts you wanna
provide opinions or conclusions using the fax and laying out how you drew the conclusion? In other words, show your work. Show how you got to this point so that it's clear to whomever is reading the report, Be it the judge
or the opposing side or the jury. If they were looking at the report in the jury room and deliberations, you want them to be able to look through it and go, Okay. He did this. He did this. He did this. He found this. He found this. He found this.
And because of that, he was able to draw this conclusion.
You want it to be very, very clear.
supplemental reports no different than original expert reports.
In this video, we talked about the role in the tact of supplemental reports.
