Prosthetics expert witnesses often have varying backgrounds within the medical industry, since prosthetics are used while treating numerous types of patients. Prosthetics expert consulting may provide valuable information for cases involving such areas as orthotics, shoe retail, pedorthics, orthopedic surgery, biomedical engineering, and other various issues, as each may become the subject of a prosthetics-related lawsuit.
Since prosthetics are used in the medical industry, many prosthetics expert witnesses may be asked to provide an expert opinion regarding a claim of medical malpractice, as utilizing the wrong type of prosthetic, whether it is for a knee replacement, artificial limb, joint replacement, or other such purpose would be cause for litigation.
Prosthetics experts are also knowledgeable with biomechanics and ergonomics, which would be very important in the design and manufacturing process of prosthetic products, as well as quality control, product liability, and other facets of biomedical engineering. In the event that a prosthetic fails to properly function or has a product defect, a failure analysis may be required to determine the source of the issue, whether it is on the fault of the manufacturer, a problem with human factors, or an error on behalf of a physician. In addition to the medical industry, prosthetics experts may also have experience in the retail sale and repair of prosthetics.
