A forensic expert report is an important part of the evidence process in civil proceedings. An examination is possible both before the initiation of a civil case, and while its consideration. In some cases, it is expedient to conduct examination immediately, until the actual circumstances are not lost or changed, for example, in cases of property damage in fire, in water, in cases of vehicles damage in road accidents. An interested party has the right to ask a forensic expert to conduct an examination. However, according to the Civil Procedure Law of Latvia, the examination conducted at the initiative of one of the parties and not appointed by the court does not have the power to obtain a forensic expert opinion and is assessed as written evidence.

The article is devoted to the issues of assessing a forensic expert report as evidence in civil procedure.
