How Much Are Expert Witness Fees?

How much do expert witnesses charge?

It depends on the type of expert.  Most experts charge by the hour.  I have paid as little as $50 per hour to hire a mechanic to serve as an expert witness.  Some neurosurgeons charge $2000 per hour for a video deposition to testify about their care for a patient.  I have never heard about anyone charging more than $2000 per hour but I guess it is possible.
