“Now, ladies and gentlemen of the jury, I will explain medical malpractice in layman’s terms. To begin, there are a number of forms of malpractice, medical and legal being the most common. Basically, the plaintiff in a medical-malpractice suit is claiming that a medical practitioner damaged him or her by providing treatment that was wrong, inadequate, or delayed and was below a standard of care for that provider.
“Since there is no universally documented standard of care, the opposing attorneys will introduce medical experts to try to establish a standard of care for the defendant or defendants and whether or not the treatment fell below this standard. Finally, the attorneys will use the same or other experts to establish what damage was done to the plaintiff as a result of any treatments (or delay in treatment) that may have fallen below the standard of care.”
As she spoke, Judge Davies watched the jurors shrewdly, moving her gaze from one to the next. (p. 42) Malpractice! the Novel
