There are many times in a personal injury or medical malpractice lawsuit in New York where the defending lawyer knows, and perhaps even admits, to his client's fault in the events that caused the plaintiff to file a case. And yet, many defending lawyers are wary of admitting liability outright and discussing damages and compensation in court. What is it that makes defendants and their lawyers so scared of admitting guilt?

When a medical malpractice lawsuit goes to trial, lawyers sometimes bring in expert or specific doctors to testify in court hoping that the testimony will make their case stronger. It is essential in these circumstances to choose the right kind of medical expert to testify on your behalf, because a lot hinges on these 'expert' testimonies and a wrong move can turn the case right around on its head.

The process of empanelling a jury is one of the most important pre-trial processes for any lawyer. The techniques of choosing jury members from the venire pool, known as voir dire in legal parlance, is taught to law students so that they can use it effectively in all their cases. One of the techniques used in the selection process is the 'challenge for cause'. It is an effective method that medical malpractice lawyers can use to screen potential jurors before empanelling.

Almost every case that comes up for jury trial has multiple aspects such as the evidence, expert testimony, and the legal arguments.

There is much more to a medical malpractice lawsuit than a person suffering from an undesirable outcome to medical treatment. A person will have to be able to prove several key elements in order to have a successful case, if they want sue and win a malpractice claim. Your healthcare provider or doctor owes you a legal duty by virtue of the relationship you share. This duty means providing you with care that is on the lines of the professional standards. To be able to prove a medical malpractice case, you need to be able to establish that a doctor or a healthcare provider did not meet the standard of care.

There are many expectant mothers whose birth plans do not include the use of an epidural, but as their labor progresses, more than 50% of them eventually end up opting for it. Epidurals are known to ease the pain an expectant woman experiences during childbirth, allowing them to focus more on the birthing procedure, rather than the immense pain that they are experiencing. In most cases, epidurals are administered without a problem. But there are times that epidural errors may be made that could result in a medical malpractice case.
