Medical malpractice is a broad term which covers both the public perception of adverse events during medical care, and a legal definition of negligence.
In common with other forms of civil claims for negligence, in order to succeed in a claim (lawsuit) the claimant (plaintiff) must successfully demonstrate two things:
- That the doctor failed in their duty of care towards the patient; meaning they failed to do something that a reasonable person in similar circumstances would have done, or they did something that a reasonable person would not have done.
- That some harm was caused by this failure to comply with the duty of care.
Expert witnesses usually testify in medical malpractice cases. These witnesses are generally independent experts from the same field of medicine as the defendant. When determining if a physician has been negligent, the plaintiff must show that the doctor did not act in accordance with a reasonable body of medical opinion. This is usually determined through the use of expert witness testimony.
