Poison control expert witnesses, like other experts specializing in emergency medical care, may be sought out for a variety of lawsuits. Poison control centers operate as medical facilities with the resources to immediately provide emergency responses in the event that an individual has ingested or been exposed to some sort of poisonous material or substance. Poison control expert consulting may provide valuable information for cases involving chemicals, industrial settings, neurology, occupational medicine, environmental medicine, hazardous materials, and toxicology, among other related disciplines, as poison control may be asked to respond to several unique situations, each of which may become the center of possible litigation.
Poison control expert witnesses may have a substantial background in neurology because of the many effects toxic exposure may have on the neurophysiology, neuropsychology, and neuromuscular systems of the human body. Disability, neuromuscular disorders, and other conditions and/or diseases may result from a case of poisoning, depending on the particular type of exposure. Poison control expert witnesses are often called upon to provide an expert opinion as a means of determining the source of toxic exposure, as well as whether the proper safety measures were implemented via poison control.
Poison control expert witnesses are also experienced with preventive medicine, occupational safety and health (OSHA), environmental medicine, disability evaluation, and other such safety measures.
