ForensisGroup provides highly qualified Geriatric expert witnesses for legal case review and expert testimony. Geriatric Medicine is the treatment of men and women over the age of sixty-five. Older medical patients will often develop problems that are unique to the elderly and therefore require a specially trained medical professional who can meet his or her particular medical needs. A geriatric expert witness may be trained in several different medical areas of expertise, including pulmonology, internal medicine, infectious diseases, cardiovascular health, nephrology, orthopedics, and psychiatry, as well as various other fields of practice.
As with other areas of medicine, a legal situation may arise due to a problem with medical malpractice, negligence, failure to diagnosis, wrongful death, below standard of care treatment, allergies, and drug-related side effects. Other cases may involve elder abuse and nursing home care, nursing home falls, bed sores, Alzheimer’s disease, and other issues related to caring for the elderly. There may be an independent medical evaluation conducted by a medical expert to determine if the person in question is capable of caring for his or herself. These are all important factors to take into consideration as you select and retain the right geriatric medicine expert witness for your situation.
