Understanding the Role and What to Expect from a Medical Malpractice Expert:

Understanding the Role and What to Expect from a Medical Malpractice Expert Medical malpractice lawsuits typically represent the most complicated types of personal injury cases litigated in the United States during the course of any given year. Unlike the standard car accident lawsuit in which injuries and the connection between the accident and the damages are clear, such is not the case in many medical malpractice of medical negligence cases.

Understanding the Role and what to Expect from a Medical Malpractice Expert:

Understanding the Role and what to Expect from a Medical Malpractice Expert With this in mind, the role of the medical malpractice expert in a medical negligence claim or cause of action is paramount. If you are contemplating initiating a medical negligence lawsuit, you must understand the overall role and what you can expect from a medical malpractice expert.

Establishing a Connection Between a Doctor's Action and an Injury:

Establishing a Connection Between a Doctor's Action and an Injury One of the primary tasks of a medical malpractice expert is to establish a connection between the action (or, as the case may be, inaction) and the resulting injuries you sustained. In order to succeed in making a medical malpractice claim, you must prove that the injuries for which you seek compensation are directly related to the conduct of the doctor. You cannot simply argue a logical connection, you must demonstrate the nexus which can really only be accomplished through the use of expert testimony.

Demonstrating the Extent of Damages and Losses Sustained:

Demonstrating the Extent of Damages and Losses Sustained Once a nexus or connection between a health care providers conduct and injuries is established, an expert is called upon to establish the extend of the damages and losses you sustained. Once again, this is an element of a claim or case that usually can only be demonstrated and established through the testimony of an expert witness.

Opening the Courthouse Door:

Opening the Courthouse Door In some instances, a malpractice lawsuit cannot be maintained beyond the initial stages of the case. The case is dismissed because a person seeking to recover for losses and damages cannot make a preliminary showing that he or she is the victim of medical malpractice. This juncture in a medical malpractice claim represents another important juncture at which the assistance of a medical expert is crucial. The expert provides a prima facie or foundational case for your malpractice claim.

Testifying at Trial:

Testifying at Trial A primary role of a medical malpractice expert is to provide testimony on your behalf during a trial in a lawsuit. If a case ends up at trial, expert testimony truly will be the heart and soul of your case.

Medical Malpractice Lawyer:
