If you’re an attorney preparing for an orthopedics-related medical malpractice, personal injury or other legal case, you probably need the services of an expert witness. Most states require the input of an expert witness before initiating a lawsuit, but finding a specialist with the right credentials often requires hours of research and vetting. Fortunately, the team at Cardinal LifeCare Consulting can review your patient’s records and connect you with an orthopedic expert witness to help with your case.

What Does an Orthopedic Expert Witness Do?
An orthopedic expert witness is a specialist with experience working in the field of orthopedics, which is primarily focused on providing treatment for bone and muscle degradation and deformation. As an expert witness, an orthopedic specialist will be required to determine whether a healthcare facility or provider followed the standards of care during all stages of a patient’s treatment, from diagnosis to rehabilitation. The expert witness will reference medical board guidelines, medical publications, and other resources to determine if medical malpractice occurred and whether it contributed to the patient’s injury or death.
Orthopedics is a specialized field that requires almost a decade of training. As a result, finding a qualified expert witness can be challenging. The consultants at Cardinal LifeCare can connect you with the right specialist for your case. We have access to a wide range of providers including physicians, anesthesiologists, nurse anesthetists, nurse practitioners, cardiology specialists, plastic surgeons, and many others.
