Arthritis expert witnesses will have backgrounds working in the medical industry, as arthritis refers to a medical condition in which the joints are inflamed, which may cause varying levels of pain in the afflicted individual. Arthritis expert consulting may provide valuable information for cases involving such areas as internal medicine, rheumatology, orthopedic surgery, sports medicine, pharmacology, pharmaceuticals, fibromyalgia, allergy, immunology, podiatric medicine, elbow surgery, infectious diseases, arthroscopic and reconstructive surgery, shoulder surgery, hand and wrist surgery, and other areas of study and procedures, as each may become highly relevant in the event of an arthritis-related lawsuit.
Arthritis experts are often experienced with performing orthopedic and rheumatic surgery, among other surgical procedures involving various bones and joints, since such treatment is often utilized to cure the patient of arthritis-related conditions. As with many cases involving medical treatment, arthritis expert witnesses may be called upon to provide an expert opinion based on claims of medical malpractice, whether it concerns patient neglect, prescribing the wrong form of medication, making an error during surgery, harmful side effects, or other unforeseen issues, each of which would be cause for potential litigation.
Arthritis experts are also often from a background in pharmacology, since various pharmaceuticals may be prescribed to treat arthritis-related symptoms. Like other forms of prescription medication, the drug development process must adhere to the proper rules and regulations as set by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA).
