Trauma may refer to the results of a physical injury, as well as a distressing mental experience or disorder. It is therefore important to understand the background of each expert and ensure that his or her experience matches the details of your particular case. A trauma-related lawsuit requires either the expertise of a psychiatrist, surgeon, psychologist, or other type of medical practitioner, depending on the type of trauma involved.
Because trauma may be defined as either a temporary injury or a lifelong condition, the form of required care will vary between each case. Like most physicians, experts in trauma often have experience with other areas within the field. Such medical procedures as spinal surgery, orthopedic surgery, thoracic surgery, pain management, critical care medicine, or surgical nursing may be relevant to treating a case of trauma.
Because trauma stems from injuries or psychologically damaging situations, lawsuits can be brought about over different things. The cause of stress or injury may be the source of a lawsuit, as well as an error made by medical professionals regarding the resulting treatment. Trauma can be a very complex issue, depending on the patient, and may be related to accidents, injuries, abuse, mental health, post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), or slips, trips, and falls.
Trauma can stem from various situations, so retaining the proper expert is crucial to the outcome of your particular case. ForensisGroup has been recruiting top quality experts for over twenty years.
