A vaccine expert witness typically has a PhD with expertise in drug interactions, forensic toxicology, medicinal chemistry, and/or clinical pharmacology. Recently, Cahn Litigation Services has been called upon to find pharmacology expert witnesses to support opioid addiction cases, dietary supplements cases, adverse drug reactions, and cases relating to toxic substances.
A vaccine is a biological preparation that provides immunity to a particular infectious disease. Litigation support by vaccine expert can involve intellectual property matters such as a trade secret dispute or patent litigation. A vaccine expert witness might also provide testimony in matters involving medical malpractice or a vaccine injury claim. In rare cases, a vaccine can cause a serious problem, such as a severe allergic reaction. The National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program (VICP), also known as vaccine court, provides financial compensation to individuals who are found to have been injured by a VICP-covered vaccine.
Litigation support activities by a medical expert specializing in vaccines could include forensic toxicology, an expert report, expert opinion, and courtroom testimony. In a high-profile case, or litigation involving a significant financial stake, the lead attorney may request a subject matter expert with prior expert testimony experience.
