Kishan Rao vs Nikhil Super Speciality Hospital on 8 March, 2010 Civil Appeal No. 2641 / 2010


“When the Fora finds that expert evidence is required, the Fora must keep in mind that an expert witness in a given case normally discharges two functions.

  1. The first duty of the expert is to explain the technical issues as clearly as possible so that it can be understood by a common man.
  2. The other function is to assist the Fora in deciding whether the acts or omissions of the medical practitioners or the hospital constitute negligence.”
