As with any athletic discipline, martial arts may become the subject of a lawsuit based on various types of incidents. Safety is very important while practicing martial arts. Lawsuits related to martial arts are usually brought about by some type of injury, resulting in the process of determining as to who or what was liable for the incident in question.
In addition to martial arts, expert witnesses in the field are usually experienced with other types of sports, such as triathlons, marathons, football, rodeos, rugby, and other intense sports that run the risk of injury. As with any form of extreme sports, martial arts-related injuries may require the use of sports medicine, emergency medicine, physical medicine and rehabilitation, physical therapy, chiropractic care, biomechanics medicine, alternative medicine, soft tissue reconstruction, and other forms of medical attention.
Martial arts expert witnesses may be licensed and/or certified as an instructor. Several forms of martial arts, such as Tae Kwon Do, are also utilized for stunts in the entertainment industry. Martial arts expert witnesses may have experience with stunt coordination in film and movie production, which can also be the subject of a lawsuit if an actor or stuntman were injured during filming or training.
