Implant Expert Witnesses
Implant expert witness candidates typically have extensive experience and expertise in mechanical engineering, medical device technology, plastic surgery, restorative dentistry, orthodontics, and/or biomedical engineering. A medical implant expert witness needs to have a solid understanding of the technology or procedure, as well as the ability to explain scientific evidence to jurors.
A medical implant is a man-made device, designed to replace, support or enhance a biological structure. Common medical implants include devices for neurological, cardiovascular, orthopedic, internal organs, cosmetic (e.g., breast implant), and dental implant uses. Matters requiring the services of an implant expert witness 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. An implant subject matter expert could also be called in on a medical or dental malpractice case, or a product liability case involving the failure analysis of a product.
Litigation support by an implant expert witness could include reverse engineering, expert opinion, expert report, depositions, and trial court testimony. In a high-profile case, or litigation involving a significant financial stake, a law firm may request a subject matter expert with prior expert testimony experience. In addition, clients may seek a medical implant industry expert for pre-litigation consulting work.
