Since there are so many forms of disease involved with possible cases, it is imperative that the right disease expert witness is selected for your case. Disease expert consulting may provide valuable information for cases involving such areas as cardiology, electrophysiology, veterinary medicine, clinical nursing, gerontology, clinical, toxicology, surgical pathology, microbiology, molecular pathology, cytology, neurology, occupational medicine, environmental medicine, pharmacology, physiological science, pediatric infectious diseases, safety, industrial hygiene, indoor environmental quality, air quality, pulmonology, plastic surgery, reconstruction surgery, family medicine, dietetics, nutrition, internal medicine, otolaryngology, neuro-otologic surgery, oncology, urology, and urological surgery, among many other health-related issues, as each may be at the center of disease litigation.
Each disease expert often has a particular area of focus, depending on the needs of each specific case. Lawsuits involving heart disease, for example, would require the expertise of a disease expert witness with a background in cardiology. Disease experts may also have a background in pharmacology, including drug research, drug development, clinical research, clinical trials, laboratory research and development, and the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), as pharmaceuticals are often required for treating viral infections and other types of disease.
Disease expert witnesses may be tasked with providing an expert opinion if infection control fails in preventing the spread of infectious disease. Other forms of medical malpractice while treating diseases, such as neglecting a patient, prescribing the wrong medication, or a problem with healthcare insurance, would also be cause for litigation.
