The expert witness must establish that the healthcare provider owed a duty of care, failed to exercise this duty of care, and as a result, directly caused injury. This is often difficult because it can be difficult to determine whether the injury was the result of the healthcare provider’s actions or not.
Once the expert witness is called, the defense lawyer will try to discredit his or her testimony by bringing in another medical expert and attempting to show that the alleged malpractice did not cause damage. Additionally, the defense may try to prove that the victim’s own actions played a part in causing the injuries. If the claim cannot be resolved during pretrial negotiations, it may be necessary to bring the matter before a jury.
