Join David Curry, Ph.D., Vice President, Human Performance Sciences and Technology for ITC Experts, for our next webinar on Eyewitness Testimony and Its Impact on Adjustments.
Judges and juries oftentimes regard eyewitnesses to accidents or incidents as a sort of gold standard as to what occurred. The great credence they give to the testimony of such eyewitnesses largely ignores well-known limitations to the human perceptual system. The problem is further compounded by a lack of understanding of how the mind retains information and how it evolves over time. This presentation is designed to acquaint the audience with some of the issues which affect or limit the perception of the individual at the time of an event, as well as make attendees aware of how and why memory for the event evolves over time in response to a wide variety of factors. This presentation is particularly timely, since judges in New Jersey are now required to provide this type of information to juries in criminal cases, likely opening the door to similar testimony in civil litigation as well.

Learning Objectives

By attending this session, you will:

– Review human perceptual limitations and aberrations that may affect an individual’s recall of an accident/incident
– Describe memory limitations, misinterpretations, and alterations that may affect an individual’s recall of critical details of a witnessed accident/incident
– Evaluate how limitations can most easily be identified, addressed, and handled during investigation and potential litigation
– Demonstrate why scientifically-obtained physical evidence is often more valid than witness testimony
