Vaccine expert witnesses are often experienced with numerous facets of the medical field, as vaccines may be utilized for various medical purposes. Vaccine expert consulting may be required by attorneys and insurance professionals as a source of information for cases regarding such medical areas as pharmaceuticals, pharmaceutical economics, infectious diseases, toxicology, rheumatology, urology, and family medicine, as well as animal science issues as practiced by veterinarians. Similar to other types of lawsuits related to the medical field, vaccine litigation may concern medical malpractice, unforeseen side effects, an error made during treatment, failing to properly inform a patient regarding his or her care, an issue with healthcare insurance, or other unforeseen problems.
Vaccine expert witnesses are from the medical field or pharmaceutical industry, as vaccines work by taking on certain traits of a disease in an effort to simulate the body’s defense mechanisms against the disease in question as a means of preventing future outbreaks, which are often administered in the form of injections. Like other forms of drugs made by the pharmaceutical industry, vaccines are products of drug research and drug development.
Many vaccine expert witnesses have a background in the study of infectious diseases, as vaccines are often administered as a means of infection control. The study of immunology in relation to viral infections is an especially important aspect of antibiotics and the development of vaccines, as failing to prevent such diseases may lead to problems with health, wrongful death, and other issues that would be grounds for potential lawsuits.
