Why Medical Experts are important to your Medical Malpractice Claim

Negligence on the part of a healthcare provider can have serious consequences and lasting health effects.  In the best of cases, a mistake might just prolong your recovery, but in the worse cases it could result in a mistake that requires years of rehabilitation to correct, loss of limb, and even death.  Medical Malpractice cases are complex and as such it is crucial to have the opinion of an expert medical witness in order to prove your claim.  Obtaining a medical expert before your case is filed can ensure that you and your attorney have prepared the best strategy and know exactly how to convey the impact of your damages to a jury.  People are not trained medical providers often do not understand medical language, so a medical expert is crucial in making sure the jury understands exactly what went wrong and how you were injured.  In wrongful death cases, a medical expert can help you relate certain factors back to the cause of death.  Unfortunately, medical experts are costly, with most have a retainer of $3,000 to $4,000 and an hourly fee of several hundred dollars.  However, if you have been injured by a negligent provider a medical expert can sometimes be the difference between winning your case or receiving less than you are entitled to.
