Dementia expert witnesses have experience in varying facets of the medical industry, as dementia often requires differing forms of treatment, depending on each specific case. Dementia expert consulting may provide insightful information for cases involving such areas as psychology, neuropsychology, neurology, neuro-degenerative diseases, emergency medicine, urgent care medicine, clinical psychiatry, neuropsychiatry, and/or gerontological nursing, among other such medical disciplines, as each may become highly relevant in the event of litigation.
Because dementia most often affects elderly individuals, many dementia expert witnesses have backgrounds working with elder care. Patients suffering from dementia often require long term care as provided by registered nurses, since dementia and other mental health issues affecting the elderly, such as Alzheimer’s disease, leave individuals in a state of mental decline. As with any type of medical mistreatment or neglect, any evidence of elder abuse while under the care of a nurse or other medical professional would be cause for potential lawsuits.
In addition to dementia, experts in this area are also often knowledgeable with numerous other issues involving mental health, including traumatic brain injury (T.B.I.), neurosurgery, memory disorders, Parkinson’s disease, movement disorders, strokes, neuromuscular disorders, and attention deficit disorder (A.D.D.), among other medical areas. Geriatric medicine may also be a factor in cases involving dementia, as well as problems resulting from medical malpractice.
