Infectious diseases are responsible for millions of deaths across the globe every year. Various pathogens can spread infectious diseases from person to person either through direct contact or via aerosols. 

Vectors such as mosquitos, lice, and ticks are also responsible for spreading many diseases. In addition, pregnant women can pass infectious diseases to their unborn children. 

Individuals can acquire other infectious diseases such as EColi by ingesting contaminated food or water. Although many infectious diseases today are managed with vaccines, practicing proper hygiene like regular hand-washing is the most effective prevention method.

Infectious Disease Expert Witness

 In most medical malpractice cases, attorneys rely on qualified experts willing to testify after reviewing all relevant medical records and information regarding the claims. Litigation involving infectious diseases is often more complex. Allegations may include delayed or inappropriate treatment of diseases and complications from the treatment itself.

An infectious disease expert witness is a medical doctor who testifies on the diagnosis and treatment of diseases and infections like COVID-19 (SARS), HIV/AIDS, and Pneumonia. Expert witnesses may also provide expert witness testimony on cases involving mycobacterial infections, viruses, and the spread of diseases.

What Can an Infectious Disease Expert Witness Do?

Medical expert witnesses are called in most medical malpractice lawsuits to provide insight into the case, from an educated opinion, and potentially testify. The testimony of a qualified physician can significantly impact the outcome of a case. Infectious disease expert witnesses are respected members of the medical community who deal with diagnosing and treating acute and chronic diseases caused by bacteria, viruses, fungi, or parasites.

Infectious diseases may include Tuberculosis (TB), HIV/AIDS, MRSA, Meningitis, Sepsis, Shingles, Chickenpox, Influenza A and B, Lyme Disease, Malaria, Toxic Shock Syndrome, Hepatitis A and B, Pneumonia, and Rubella, among other health problems caused by infections.

The Importance of an Infectious Disease Expert in a Claim

An expert witness is a licensed physician who has specialized knowledge of a particular subject beyond the average doctor’s, even in the same field. The expert witness can explain the specific disease and how treatment affects the outcome. Infectious disease experts don’t just understand the standard of care. They define it in a way that’s easy to understand for individuals outside of the medical field.

Infectious disease expert witnesses provide unbiased opinions in medical-related lawsuits within the scope of their expertise. They may also shed insight into whether or not there was a deviation from standard protocols or how a doctor’s malpractice can affect the patient’s well-being. The medical expert witnesses present clear, easy to comprehend facts in depositions and trials so every member of the court can understand the claims, regardless of how complex the medical issue may be.
