Stroke expert witnesses will have varying types of experience working in the medical industry, since strokes can cause numerous types of problems for different patients, depending on the nature of each specific case. Stroke expert consulting may provide valuable information for cases involving such areas as psychology, psychiatry, neurosurgery, neurology, neurodegenerative diseases, speech and language pathology, internal medicine, primary health care, physical therapy, and cardiology, among many other related issues, as each may be at the focus of a stroke-relate court case.
Stroke experts often have backgrounds working with mental health, as strokes occur when the blood flow is suddenly cut off from one’s brain. The sudden lack of blood also cuts off the mind’s oxygen supply, which can lead to severe brain damage and other types of problems. Such experts may also have experience with treating depression, autism, traumatic brain injury (T.B.I.), Alzheimer’s disease, dementia, memory disorders, and various other issues pertaining to behavioral health.
Stroke expert witnesses may also have experience with occupational therapy and other forms of rehabilitation counseling, since a stroke may affect the ability to speak and perform other daily functions. As with other medical claims, stroke experts may also be tasked with providing an expert opinion due to a possible instance of medical malpractice, which would be grounds for litigation.
