Golf Expert Witness – Trevor Homer

Trevor Homer - Golf Expert Witness

Serving the UK and Europe with Unique and Proven Expertise since 1993.

Instructed as an Expert Witness in several successful landmark cases.

Personal injuries on golf courses and driving ranges are generally foreseeable and avoidable.

Driven golf balls can exceed 150 mph, and travel more than 300 metres, and if an errant-struck ball hits an individual, it can cause permanent disabling injury.

Every year, increasing numbers of golfers, spectators and staff, are permanently maimed or blinded on golf courses and ‘rub of the green’ is no longer acceptable.

Every golf hole in the world presents a unique challenge, making the circumstances of golf accidents complex and not easily understood by non-golfers.

It is essential for the expert witness to possess an intimate knowledge of golf and its many demands, and to express these succinctly in reports and to the court.

Trevor Homer has a unique background in golf, competing at the highest professional and amateur levels, heading-up the National Body of Golf for under 18s, and designing golf courses and other golf facilities throughout Europe.

In company with his background in health and safety management, Trevor Homer has provided the necessary intelligence and guidance for the courts for many years.
