Outsourced Medical Expert Witnesses
In some court cases involving personal injury or medical malpractice, a professional medical opinion is needed to verify a claim. This is where medical expert witnesses are brought in by attorneys. Medical expert witnesses are doctors, surgeons, nurses, and other licensed professionals whose experience, knowledge, and skills qualify them to provide their opinion on a medical specialization. These witnesses can be utilized in the discovery and trial stages of a case.
