A Medical Expert Witness Helps Establish Strong Grounds for a Lawsuit

The testimony of a medical expert witness is crucial in most medical malpractice cases because non-doctors who are dealing with the case may not fully understand the scientific principles involved. A skilled toxicology expert witness, for example, can explain how certain chemicals can cause death or paralysis to a person. The judge’s verdict can greatly shift after listening to the testimony of a reputable expert witness.

There have been many instances when a case was immediately decided (or worse, dismissed) due to lack of medical expert witnesses from either the prosecution or the defense.
