What is a head injury expert witness?

Head injury expert witness candidates are typically PhD board certified neurologists, clinical psychologists or neuropsychiatrists, with extensive experience in private practice, neurosurgery, neuropsychology, emergency medicine, neuropsychiatry  clinical psychology, clinical neuropsychology, or as a professor of neurology. The chosen expert may a member of an industry organization such as the American Neurological Association (ANA), the Society for Neuroscience (SfN), the American Association of Neurological Surgeons (AANS), the Association for Clinical Neurology and Mental Health (ACNM) and/or the American Medical Association (AMA).

What types of cases require a head injury expert witness?

A traumatic brain injury (TBI) and head injury are often used interchangeably in health care. Many times, though not always, brain damage issues are at the heart of head injury cases.

Litigation support matters requiring a head injury expert witness often involve a medical malpractice case, personal injury, standard of care, and medical negligence. In a high-profile case, or litigation involving a significant financial stake, the law firm may request a neurologist, neuropsychologist, neurosurgeon, clinical psychologist, or traumatic brain injury specialist with prior expert witness testimony experience.
