Medical malpractice is professional negligence by a medical professional’s act or omission. The medical professional can be a medical doctor, a dentist, a radiologist, a nurse, a nurse practitioner, or a physician assistant. The negligence occurs when the medical professional owed the patient a duty, breached the duty by deviating from standard of care and the breach proximately caused harm to a patient. The standard of care is what a reasonable doctor is required to do under the same or similar circumstances. In the context of medical malpractice, one or more medical experts in different area are usually required to testify for establishing liability and proximate cause. The experts are medical doctors and/or technologists who review the relevant medical records, determine whether medical malpractice has occurred, and testify that the defendant medical professional has committed medical malpractice and the negligence caused the patient’s injury or injuries. In certain cases, an economist is required to help determine economic damages to the patient. Furthermore, a life planning expert may be obtained to help determine the amount of money to support the patient’s life after the injury caused by the negligence.
