How much does an Expert Witness make per Year? Average Expert Witness Salary Range

With the greatly increased public exposure of the role of expert witnesses, more and more people every year are considering the possibilities of this profession. So how much does an expert witness make per year? To begin with, expert witnesses are not usually officially employed, only rented for particular cases. Expert witness compensation amounts are usually dependent upon the nature of their expertise and is often paid by the hour. Medical experts are an average of $560 per hour, and can earn annual salaries upwards of $50,000 per year if they are skilled enough. Expert witnesses in other fields will generally earn closer to $250 per hour. A role as an expert witness is usually done more for a supplemental income rather than a primary career.
