The primary role of a professional medical expert witness is to provide a knowledgeable, educated and independent opinion on the clinical issues involved in a legal case. Depending on what the expert’s specialist field is and what the requirements of the case are, medical expert witnesses are used to evaluate the facts of the case and form an expert opinion that’s based on their experience and qualifications. All medical expert witnesses must have years of verifiable experience in their respective fields and must be known as a reputable, trustworthy figure in order to be considered an ‘expert’.
