Euthanasia cases can become very complex and may require the expertise of a trusted and knowledgeable euthanasia expert witness. Euthanasia is the process of intentionally ending the life of a patient suffering from a painful and incurable disease, coma, or other type of medical condition. While voluntary euthanasia is legal in certain countries and states, involuntary euthanasia, meaning that the patient is unable to give his or her consent, is illegal in all areas. Euthanasia expert consulting may provide insightful information for cases pertaining to such disciplines as traumatic injury, traumatic brain injury (T.B.I.), wrongful death, oncology, cancer, tumor, neurology, neuroscience, medicine, medical malpractice, pain management, anesthesiology, toxicology, mental health, psychiatry, psychology, neuropsychology, pain medicine, and other medical issues, each of which may be a major issue in the event of a euthanasia-related lawsuit.
Before legal euthanasia is considered, the patient must undergo a mental health evaluation as a means of ensuring that he or she is capable of rational decision-making and can give proper consent for the procedure. Each patent considering legal euthanasia can only carry out the procedure with the assistance of a credible physician. If a patient is on life support and unable to respond, euthanasia may become the subject of a court case if the family cannot reach a proper decision.
