Would Care Expert Witness & Testimony

A wound is an injury, or break, on the skin or any other body tissue; they include cuts, scrapes, scratches, and punctured skin. The type of care given depends on the sort of wound received and its severity. A wound care expert witness may be utilized to help determine whether there was negligence in the care of the wound and to assist in determining liability.

Wound care expert witnesses are experienced in a variety of fields, but most commonly work in the medical field. An expert in wound care may work in such areas as:

  • Emergency medicine
  • Physical therapy
  • Orthopedic surgery
  • Gerontological nursing
  • Burn wounds
  • Critical care medicine
  • Internal medicine
  • Clinical pedorthics
  • Vascular surgery

As well as other types of conditions and injuries in need of care and treatment. Wound care is used in many forms of treatment, so it is not uncommon for unanticipated complications to arise. Some of these may result in a lawsuit, which would then require the expert opinion of a wound care professional.
