ANSWER

Many states require plaintiffs in medical malpractice suits to file a certificate of merit. This requires the review of medical records by an expert such as another physician, who must certify that the plaintiff's physician failed to meet the accepted standard of care and that this negligence resulted in injury or damage. The plaintiff's attorney must then file the certificate of merit.
