Neuropsychiatry expert witnesses may be highly relevant for cases involving mental health issues, as neuropsychiatry is the medical practice concerning how neurological disorders are affected by the nervous system. Neuropsychiatry expert consulting may provide valuable information for such disciplines as neuroscience, human behavior, psychology, clinical neuropsychology, psychiatric nursing, geriatric psychiatry, legal medicine, and other related medical issues, as each may become the subject of potential litigation.
Neuropsychiatrist expert witnesses may have experience with such matters as drug abuse and addiction, gambling, learning disabilities, competency, memory disorders, chronic fatigue, posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and other aspects of trauma-related conditions, sleep apnea, stress claims, depression, dementia, movement disorders, ADHD, suicide prevention, traumatic brain injury (T.B.I.), or other ailments and issues treated by mental healthcare practices. Like other areas of the medical field, however, neuropsychiatry expert witnesses may be asked to provide an expert opinion regarding whether the proper form of healthcare was implemented for each patient, as medical malpractice, the misuse of pharmaceuticals, failing to properly inform a patient of his or her treatment, unforeseen side effects, patient neglect, or problems with healthcare insurance, as well as other numerous medical problems, would be grounds for possible lawsuits.
Neuropsychiatry expert witnesses are also knowledgeable with neurology and neuroscience as a means of studying neuropsychiatric disorders, which would be highly relevant to various types of cases related to both patients and practitioners of mental health.
