How may a medical malpractice lawsuit use an expert witness?

In a lawsuit concerning medical malpractice, an expert witness can attest and deliver expert analysis on the medical issues at stake, such as the adequate standard of care, culpability, or the extent of the plaintiff’s injuries.

Medical Negligence & Medical Malpractice Lawsuits

The expert witnesses will provide the court with their expert analysis of the case, which may be based on their specialization, experience, and knowledge in the relevant industry. Their job is to give the court a thorough grasp of the medical issues at hand and to aid the judge and jury in making decisions about the case.

In a medical malpractice lawsuit, the evidence of the expert witness can be crucial since it can help establish whether or not the medical professional’s conduct was in accordance with the standard of care.

Medical Negligence Case SGH Hepatitis C Outbreak

In 2015, there was a Hepatitis C outbreak at the Singapore General Hospital (SGH), which resulted in the infection of twenty-five people and the death of eight.

Infection control procedures were violated, and team members failed to effectively collaborate, which led to the epidemic. Due to the incident, a thorough investigation was conducted, and it was established that the SGH was careless in delivering medical attention.

The hospital’s practice of recycling syringes enabled the infection to spread throughout the neighborhood. Additionally, it was discovered that the hospital had neither alerted the general populace about the epidemic nor managed the situation well.
