ForensisGroup Fentanyl Expert Witnesses specialize in all aspects of this opioid medication (also known as a narcotic). Fentanyl is commonly used as an anesthesia and to prevent pain after surgery or other medical procedures. The medication is injected into a muscle or into a vein through an IV. Fentanyl is a potent painkiller that is roughly 100 times more powerful than morphine.
There have been numerous fentanyl pain patch lawsuits filed against manufacturers of these products claiming that fentanyl patches are defective, product warning labels fail to adequately warn patients of potential risks, and physicians and healthcare facilities have failed to properly use and prescribe the medication. The accumulation of crystals in the patch has the potential to lead to overdoses and other adverse effects.
Our experts have many years of practical experience as physicians and pharmacists with expertise in medical, pharmacy, pharmacology, and toxicology cases. They also specialize in postmortem pharmacologic analysis, anaphylactic reactions, medication photosensitivity, overdoses of Fentanyl, as well as cases involving cardiac and respiratory arrest from Fentanyl.
They testify in litigation involving pharmacist error in filling and dispensing medications, pharmacy and pharmacist standards of care, drug product liability, adverse effects of medications, cognitive impairment, pain management, and wrongful death.
ForensisGroup has been helping attorneys, law firms, insurance companies, as well as other public and private agencies find experienced and qualified expert witnesses since 1991. Browse the list of expert witnesses or a related discipline below and find out more about our Fentanyl expert witnesses.
