Dr. Dick Bridy works closely with counsel to understand the specific needs of the case. Secondly, he evaluates his role as the ideal testifier on a team of experts that will complement each other to deliver a convincing message. Finally, the expert must connect with the judge or jury, pure and simple. Dick has an innate ability to bond with other human beings and shows compassion for the people involved, including the litigant, judge, jury, or subjects of the claim. Dick believes that compassion is infectious and extremely persuasive.

For example: Commercial construction and building occupancy sites are an intricate web of regulations, safety protocols, and industry standards. Accidents can arise from a multitude of factors – supervisory negligence, building and electrical code violations, unsafe working environment, lack of training and certification, faulty equipment, improper use of materials, deviations from safety plans, or even communication breakdowns between different crews. For a judge or jury unfamiliar with the nuances of construction practices, deciphering the cause of the accident and assigning blame can be a daunting task.
