To defend against a malpractice lawsuit a doctor can:
- Present expert witnesses who will testify to the fact that they acted reasonably and showed a reasonable degree of care and were not negligent.
- Present evidence that the patient would have had the same end result anyway. If the doctor’s negligence didn’t actually cause injury, or if the injury would have ended up happening anyway and to the same degree it did, the plaintiff can’t win his case
