Serve as an Expert Witness
Eagle Legal Nurse Consultants can serve as an expert witness and testify to the nursing standard of care.
As Legal Nurse Consultants we can serve as Expert Witnesses in “Nursing” standards of care, if you have a legal case against a nurse. We can NOT serve as an Expert Witness in the Medical standards for Healthcare Providers.
The attorney will have to seek out a Healthcare Provider to testify on the behave of “Medical” standards of care. Eagle Legal Nurse Consultants can help in this area by seeking out the right medical professional for the specific legal case.
The educating witness teaches the fact-finder (jury or, in a bench trial, judge) about the underlying scientific theory and instrument implementing theory. This witness is an expert witness, called to elicit opinions that a theory is valid and the instruments involved are reliable. The witness must be accredited as an expert witness, which may require academic qualifications or specific training.
