In a medical malpractice case which another orthopedic expert has to view the case, does the expert have to write up a document stating he has proof that I have a case or not?
1 Answer from Attorneys
The attorneys in a medical malpractice case will retain experts to review the facts and issues. If you are the injured party, your attorney will try to find an expert who will support your case. This expert must have credentials that match the medical provider's credentials. This expert will be asked to provide an "Affidavit of Merit" in which she will affirm that after reviewing the facts and circumstances, she finds that the medical provider breached the standard of care and caused your injury.
