The Tampa medical malpractice attorneys at the TK Firm work closely with medical experts. Medical expert serves two purposes in a malpractice lawsuit. One, the medical expert will evaluate the patient treatment that was administered, so they can carefully tell the jury how the doctor violated the accepted standard of care of the medical profession. Two, medical experts will testify in regards to the extent of the patient’s injuries and damages they suffered as a result of the malpractice.

Further, the testifying expert must be able to communicate complex issues in clear, concise manner so the jury will understand.
