Biomedical engineering expert witness candidates typically have knowledge in an engineering discipline as well as biology. The chosen expert may be a member of an industry association, such as the Biomedical Engineering Society (BMES), the Society of Biological Engineering (SBE), or the IEEE Engineering in Medicine and Biology Society (EMB). In a high-profile case, or litigation involving a significant financial stake, counsel may request a an expert with prior expert witness testimony experience.
Biomedical engineering brings together medicine and biology to advance health care treatment. Matters requiring the services of a biomedical engineer often involve intellectual property, such as patent infringement litigation or trade secret disputes. A forensic engineer can reverse engineer components to prove (or disprove) intellectual property infringement or theft. A biomedical or biomechanical engineer could also be called in on a medical malpractice case, accident reconstruction, or a product liability case involving the failure analysis of a medical device. Representative matters that Cahn Litigation Services has experience placing biomedical engineering experts for include:
