The Role of the Medical Expert Witness in Medical Malpractice Cases

Medical malpractice is a serious crime that could potentially destroy the career of an established medical professional, so you might see why there’s simply no room for an error in judgment when practicing medicine. Note that most courts will deny or dismiss a malpractice case when there is no reliable medical expert witness to take the stand either for or against the accused.

On Medical Malpractice

A case for medical malpractice could be brought to court once the plaintiff believes that the negligence of a particular medical practitioner has brought about further physical injury, or worse, the death of another. Common medical malpractice cases include instances of misdiagnosis, erroneous dosage application, treatment faults, or even aftercare negligence.
