Depression expert witnesses may be sought out for a wide range of cases, since depression affects many patients and often requires varied forms of treatment as provided by the medical field. Depression expert consulting may provide valuable insight for cases involving such areas as clinical psychology, forensic psychology, psychiatry, anxiety disorders, clinical social work, addition, clinical nursing, geriatric psychiatry, neuropsychiatry, pharmacology, child and adolescent psychiatry, pediatric clinical neuropsychiatry, neurology, post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), ergonomics, occupational/vocational rehabilitation, and many other issues pertaining to mental health, as each may become the focus of potential litigation.
Depending on each particular case, depression expert witnesses may have a specific focus working with a certain population. Depression experts with a background in child psychology, for instance, may specialize with psychological assessments in relation to student health services, school performance, special education, child abuse, pediatrics, and other related matters.
Depression expert witnesses may be called upon for a case to offer an expert opinion in the event of medical malpractice, whether it involves prescribing the wrong type of medication, neglecting a patient, failing to properly inform a patient regarding the nature of his or her care, or a problem with healthcare insurance, among other possible issues. Depression experts are also often knowledgeable with such issues as schizophrenia, trauma, bipolar disorder, autism, Alzheimer’s disease, and other areas related to mental health.
