The forensic medicine expert witnesses at ForensisGroup focus on the branch of medicine that pertains to the application of medical knowledge to establish facts in civil or criminal legal cases. For example, forensic medicine expert witnesses are called upon in an investigation into the cause and time of a suspicious or accidental death.
Forensic medicine, also known as “forensic pathology,” is a specialized field of forensic science that combines medicine and law. Our experts in this area are practitioners who apply medical and scientific procedures to analyze evidence to determine the cause of death, origins of a disease, or liability for injuries. These forensic medicine experts are doctors licensed in pathology who analyze body tissue, fluids, organs, and cells of individuals who have died suddenly or violently to determine the cause and manner of death. The results of their findings are critical in establishing whether the cause and manner of death was due to crime, suicide, accident, unknown or natural causes. These experts are in high demand in cases of wrongful death, negligence, and products liability.
The professional experience of our forensic medicine experts includes tenure in positions such as clinical instructors in pathology departments, neuropsychiatrists, forensic pathologists, health consultant, medical directors, and pathology research associates.
