Cardiovascular Expert Witnesses
What is a cardiovascular expert witness?
Cardiovascular expert witness candidates have years of experience and expertise in diseases and disorders of the cardiovascular system. Cardiovascular expert witness candidates typically have extensive experience as a board-certified cardiologist, medical examiner, medical school professor, cardiothoracic surgeon, interventional cardiologist, legal nurse consultant, nurse practitioner, as an internal medicine specialist, in medical device design, or with a focused area of expertise in pediatric cardiology. Cardiovascular expert witnesses may be members of professional organizations such as a fellow of the American College of Cardiology (FACC) or the American Society for Preventative Cardiology (ASPC).
What types of cases require a cardiovascular expert witness?
Oftentimes, matters requiring medical expert witnesses involve intellectual property, such as patent infringement litigation, inter partes review or trade secret disputes. A cardiologist/cardiovascular expert witness could also be called in on medical malpractice cases, personal injury cases, medical device product liability, standards of care, or medical negligence. Cases may be civil or criminal and require not only cardiovascular expertise, but the ability to communicate findings to juries for ease of understanding.
