Diabetes Expert Witness
Hire a diabetes expert witness and build a winning case.
In 2015, more than 30 million Americans had diabetes. As many as 1.5 million Americans are diagnosed with diabetes each year. The disease is serious, especially when undiagnosed or untreated, as diabetes is the 7th leading cause of death among Americans.
When it comes to medical malpractice, most cases involve a delayed diagnosis, misdiagnosis, or wrongful treatment of diabetes that leads to personal injury or death. When left undiagnosed or untreated, diabetes can cause life-threatening conditions like heart disease, stroke, kidney damage, nerve damage, and even death.
For example, in the case of a misdiagnosis, a diabetes expert can explain to a jury how the only way to have an accurate diagnosis of Type 1 diabetes is to test for the diabetes-related (islet) autoantibodies. With Type 1 diabetes, it’s not unusual for patients to be misdiagnosed with one of the following:
- Type 2 diabetes
- Gestational diabetes
- Flu virus
- Eating disorders
A diabetes misdiagnosis can also result in delayed treatment, which increases risk of the aforementioned life-threatening health conditions.
Delayed diagnosis is another serious matter. One study found that “delay in diagnosis of diabetes cannot be attributed to patient nonadherence as a result of missing appointments or blood tests.” Instead, the delay was most often attributed to provider factors, such as opportunities when a diagnosis could have been made by a physician, but was not.
In cases involving diabetes treatment, diabetes experts with a pharmaceutical background may be helpful. They can strategize and explain concepts related to drug research, drug development, patent laws, and accurate diabetes treatment.
