What role do expert witnesses play in medical malpractice cases?

Video Transcription:

In order to pursue and prevail on a medical malpractice claim, the patient must prove that the standard of care was violated by the defendant and health care provider. The standard of care is proven with evidence or testimony from an expert witness. An expert witness must be of the same specialty and same medical field as the potential defendant.
