Abstract

This update provides an overview of the current state of expert witness testimony regarding malpractice cases. Many trials are reduced to a battle of the experts and many physicians advertise their credentials and expertise in hopes of attracting lucrative cases. This article focuses on what constitutes an expert witness, medical organizations oversight, the peer review process, and physician immunity.
