Medical Malpractice Expert Witnessing: Introductory Guide for Physicians and Medical Professionals

JAMA. 2008;299(10):1197-1198. doi:10.1001/jama.299.10.1197

Portions of Medical Malpractice Expert Witnessing will prove helpful to those physicians venturing into the world of serving as expert witnesses in medical malpractice cases, because the latter third of the book contains insightful recommendations and practical suggestions from which the novice expert witness could benefit. Despite forays into generalized overviews of the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act, alternative dispute resolution, punitive damages, tort reform, and maritime medical malpractice, the text has intrinsic value. When the author sticks with what he seems to know best—serving as a professional expert witness—the book is at its best and should assist prospective physician expert witnesses.
