Concussion expert witnesses have strong experience working in the medical field, since a concussion, which is a period of unconsciousness brought about by a head injury, can often lead to various types of problems if not properly treated. Concussion expert consulting may provide valuable information for cases involving such areas as psychology, neuropsychology, neurological surgery, speech and language pathology, pediatric neuropsychology, neurophysiology, health and physical education, and other medical issues, as each may be at the center of a concussion-related court case.
Since a concussion occurs as a result of a brain injury, concussion experts often have experience with epilepsy, memory disorders, dementia, Parkinson’s disease, traumatic brain injury (T.B.I.), bipolar disorder, borderline personality disorder, neuropsychiatric disorders, and additional types of mental health conditions. Concussions may also result from sports injuries, including football injuries and other types of contact sports.
Concussion expert witnesses may also be called upon to provide an expert opinion in the event of medical malpractice, whether it involves patient neglect, a misdiagnosis, an error made during a surgical procedure, an adverse reaction to anesthesia or other unforeseen side effects, prescribing the wrong type of medication, a problem with healthcare insurance, or further medical issue, each of which would be grounds for possible litigation.
