The law requires that testimony from a medical expert is necessary to prove: (1) the establishment of the acceptable standard of care that the negligent medical provider should have performed; (2) the medical provider's deviation from the acceptable standard of care (negligence) and (3) the resulting damages.

An expert witness, professional witness or judicial expert is a witness, who by virtue of education, training, skill, or experience, is believed to have expertise and specialised knowledge in a particular subject beyond that of the average person, sufficient that others may officially and legally rely upon the witness's specialized (scientific, technical or other) opinion about an evidence or fact issue within the scope of his expertise.

Medical malpractice is the negligence of a healthcare provider that causes an injury to a patient. Negligence may be due to the medical provider's failure to do something he/she is suppose to do or in the alternative to do something he/she is not suppose to do. Without an injury, medical negligence is not an actionable cause of action.
