Using Expert Witnesses in a Medical Malpractice Lawsuit


In the majority of medical malpractice cases in California today, expert legal witnesses are critical. We at Johnson Attorneys Group fully understand the many intricacies of medical malpractice cases, which helps us to identify the medical experts who will benefit your case the most. Call us today for a free case review 1-800-208-3538.

The highly complex medical information that a medical expert testifies about is something that the judge and the jury need help in understanding. Without a medical expert’s help, it’s hard to make an informed decision in the case. Our attorney is here to ensure that you get the medical expert that will support your case in the way that you need.

What the California Medical Expert Can Do For Your Case

At Johnson Attorneys Group, we work with medical experts because they answer the two most critical medical malpractice questions in a clear and insightful way.

Those questions are:

  • Did the physician use the same standard of care that others in their position would have used? The medical expert will explain how a competent physician would have handled the situation, and will then explain precisely how your doctor’s care failed to meet this standard.
  • Did the physician’s failure to adhere to that standard of care cause harm to you as the patient? It’s important to establish that the doctor failed to provide the expected standard of care, but it’s not enough on its own. The medical expert will also explain how the doctor’s actions (or lack of actions) caused harm to you. Clearly explaining how the physician caused this harm is what allows for you to be compensated properly for your injuries.

When Do You Need the Medical Expert?

Prior to the start of the trial, you must have arranged a medical expert already. This must be done well in advance because as your attorney we have to inform the court of the nature of your medical expert’s testimony. Our Johnson Attorneys Group lawyers always make sure that you’ve got the medical expert that you need in plenty of time for the trial.
