Compartment syndrome expert witnesses will have strong medical experience, since compartment syndrome refers to conditions in which pressure builds up in the muscle and nerves to a dangerous degree and can leave lasting damage, which may occur after a serious and traumatic injury. Compartment expert consulting may provide valuable information for cases involving such areas as plastic and reconstructive surgery, microsurgery, emergency medicine, pulmonary embolism, neck fractures, and other medical issues, as each may be at the focus of a compartment syndrome-related court case.
Compartment syndrome experts are often experienced with performing various types of surgical procedures, since compartment syndrome must be corrected via surgery. Such experts may have a particular focus in reconstructive surgery, plastic surgery, orthopedic surgery, breast reconstruction, hand surgery, amputation and replantation, skin grafts, microsurgery, or other types of procedures. Like many lawsuits involving surgery, however, compartment syndrome expert witnesses may be called upon to provide an expert opinion regarding a possible case of medical malpractice, whether it involves an adverse reaction to anesthesia, unforeseen side effects, an error made during surgery, failing to properly inform the patient, or other possible issue, each of which would be grounds for potential litigation. Compartment syndrome cases may also require accident investigation and reconstruction, since the condition may result from injuries occurring during automotive accidents.
