Biomedical Engineering Expert Witnesses
What is a biomedical engineering expert witness?
Biomedical engineering expert witness candidates typically have knowledge in an engineering discipline as well as biology. These experts have advanced degrees in biomedical engineering, often with specialties in bioinstrumentation, biomaterials, biomechanics, tissue engineering, genetic engineering, and prosthesis. 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 an expert with prior expert witness testimony experience.
What types of cases require a biomedical engineering expert witness?
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.
