Magic Words and Medical Malpractice
John Day wrote a good blog post recently dealing with the language experts use in medical malpractice cases. The post is located here. To me, this is good reasoning in both Tennessee and Mississippi. The issue of the article was whether an expert testifying has to use perfect legal language in order to survive a directed verdict. Ultimately, the article discusses that this is not required based on a recent Tennessee Court of Appeals case. The only thing required is that their be enough evidence that a reasonable juror could infer negligence.
