Sleep disorder expert witnesses will have strong backgrounds in various areas of the medical field, as sleep disorders can lead to serious health concerns if not properly treated. Sleep disorders expert consulting may provide valuable information for cases involving such areas as neurological issues, psychiatry, dentistry, pulmonology, pain management, neurofeedback, biofeedback, otolaryngology, and internal medicine, as well as other medical disciplines, each of which may become the center of a sleep disorder-related lawsuit.
Sleep disorder experts may have a background in dentistry, since sleep disorders can have a negative effect on the condition of one’s teeth and jaw. Sleep apnea, for instance, may affect the functionality of various dental appliances. Depending on the nature of each particular case, sleep disorder patients may also experience varying levels of pain in or around one’s teeth, which would require pain management treatment.
Sleep disorder experts often have experience with psychiatry and neurology, since the condition may stem from issues related to the brain and mental health. Problems with addiction, autism, brain injury, cancer, virology, and other types of medical ailments and injuries may result in problems with sleep disorders. As with any type of litigation involving medical conditions, sleep disorder expert witnesses may be asked to provide an expert opinion in the event of medical malpractice, whether it involves the neglect of a patient, prescribing the wrong type of medication, failing to properly inform the patient of his or her treatment, or causing unforeseen side effects, as each may lead to a possible court case.
