ForensisGroup Superbug Expert Witnesses are specialists in research and treatment of bacteria that cannot be killed using multiple antibiotics—a pathogenic microorganism (especially a bacterium) that has developed resistance to the medications normally used to combat it.
Superbug is also known as “multidrug-resistant bacteria,” and is contracted by patients in the hospital, medical care facilities, and nursing homes. Lawsuits stem from the use of medical tools that are placed into the body, such as catheters, breathing tubes, or viewing scopes, even after cleaning. Endoscopes (side-viewing duodenoscopes) have been a common instrument at issue. Patients exposed to the superbug outbreak have brought actions against duodenoscope manufacturers, claiming it disregarded extreme risks to public health by failing to instruct hospital staff on how to properly clean the scopes.
Our expert witnesses have many years of practical experience in infectious disease issues and epidemiology. This expertise includes infections of all medical specialties, infection control, independent medical evaluations, and medical malpractice. Their expertise also includes comprehensive clinical and administrative skills in the areas of general infectious diseases and internal medicine.
As expert witnesses, they assist law firms and insurance companies by providing case reviews, research, and independent medical evaluations, along with testifying in depositions and trials.
