Spine expert witnesses most often have a background working in the medical industry, as the spine may pertain to numerous medical issues. Spine expert consulting may provide valuable information involving such areas as physical medicine rehabilitation, pain management, neurological surgery, orthopedic surgery, endoscopic spinal surgery, neuroscience, occupational and vocational rehabilitation, ergonomics, biomedical engineering, and other related issues, as each may be at the center of a spine-related lawsuit.
Spine experts are often experienced with treating various spinal injuries and conditions, whether it concerns a personal injury, nerve injury, brain injury, back pain, back trauma, traumatic brain injury (T.B.I.), or spinal disorder, among many other types of ailments. Like other claims involving medical issues, however, spine expert witnesses may be asked to provide an expert opinion based on an instance of medical malpractice, which may include prescribing the wrong medication, neglecting a patient, making an error during spinal surgery, a problem with healthcare insurance, or other possible issue, each of which would be cause for possible litigation.
Since many spine-related injuries may occur in workplace environments, spine experts may be knowledgeable with workers compensation, as well as other forms of insurance coverage involving premises liability. Spine injuries and conditions may also result from nerve injury, brain injury, or various types of trauma, which may require physical medicine and rehabilitation, spinal surgery, or other treatments and procedures.
