Pediatrics refers to any type of medical treatment for children, meaning that pediatric expert witnesses will have a varied range of experience, depending on the focus of each particular case. Whether it concerns a disease, injury, general checkup, surgery, medicine, therapy, or any other aspect of the medical field, a child patient would require care from a pediatrician. As with each area of medicine, however, an incident may occur and result in potential grounds for litigation. Such unforeseen issues may include medical malpractice, prescription errors, failure to properly inform the parents or guardian of a patient regarding medical treatment and procedures, negligence of a patient, or a misdiagnosis, among other possible incidents.
Pediatric expert witnesses might be experienced with family practice, internal medicine, allergy and immunology, psychiatry, psychology, infectious diseases, critical care medicine, intensive care, cardiology, gastroentology, various forms of surgery, healthcare management, emergency medicine, urology, pathology, orthopedics, and other medical studies. Pediatrics expert witnesses are licensed and/or certified in these areas as applied to pediatric medicine, which entails many forms of medical care and various types of treatment. Each of these areas of focus may be relevant to a pediatrics lawsuit, so it important to hire a pediatrics expert witness who can offer an expert opinion on the specific details of your particular case.
Pediatric critical care and other forms of treatment may also be relevant in a court case, as the nature of such care may be different in pediatrics when compared to general medicine.
