Epilepsy expert witnesses will have experience working with neurological issues, as epilepsy refers to a nervous system disorder in which disruptions occur within the brain, resulting in loss of consciousness, seizures, convulsions, or other types of involuntary movement and behavior. Epilepsy expert consulting can provide valuable insight for cases involving such areas as psychology, clinical neuropsychology, pediatric neurology, pharmacotherapy, neurophysiology, traumatic brain injury (T.B.I.), and neurological surgery, in addition to various other related medical issues, as each may become the subject of a possible lawsuit pertaining to epilepsy.
Since the condition concerns neurology, many epilepsy experts have strong experience working with mental health issues, such as bipolar disorder, dementia, memory disorder, Parkinson’s disease, Alzheimer’s disease, concussion, borderline personality disorder, developmental disabilities, brain injury, sleep disorders, mood disorder, behavioral health, and other such areas. Because epilepsy might be treated via certain types of medication, epilepsy expert witnesses are often knowledgeable with the pharmaceutical industry, pharmacology, drug regulations, toxicology, pharmacy operations, and other related issues.
Epilepsy experts may also be called upon to provide an expert opinion in the event of medical malpractice, which might concern a misdiagnosis, patient neglect, a problem with healthcare insurance, an adverse reaction to medication, or other possible issue.
