Are expert testimonies necessary or reliable?

In a medical malpractice case, you may need to have experts testify on your behalf. It's important to have an expert in the same field as the doctor who made an error that caused your injury speak about the situation and what could have been done to prevent it. The courts often rely on the professional knowledge of an expert to dictate what is or is not professional behavior and an appropriate standard of care.

Preventing eye injuries is important as surgery becomes common

One kind of surgery that is becoming more common is eye surgery. With the invention of Lasik and other alternative laser surgeries, more people are choosing to have their vision corrected in this manner. Errors made during an eye surgery can leave a person blind, though, so it's vital that surgeons and their staff members are focused and well-versed in the treatments they offer.

Is an infection something to sue a hospital over?

Imagine going into the hospital for a minor medical procedure. It's an outpatient operation, but you end up staying overnight because of complication. That's fine, there was no way for the medical providers to know you had an allergy to one of the medications being used.
