Medical Expert Witness
How We Serve Attorneys
What is a Medical Expert Witness?
A Medical Expert Witness is a witness, who by virtue of education, training, skill, or experience, is believed to have expertise and specialized 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/her expertise.
What is Medical Malpractice?
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 supposed to do, or in the alternative to do something he/she is not supposed to do. Without an injury, medical negligence is not an actionable cause of action.
In medical malpractice cases, the law requires that testimony from a Medical Expert Witness is necessary to prove:
of the acceptable standard of care that the negligent medical provider should have performed.
The medical provider's deviation from the acceptable standard of care (negligence).
The resulting damages.
