Oncologists are medical doctors whose speciality lies in the research, diagnosis and treatment of patients with cancer. A complex and increasingly common disease, cancer is treated with a range of medical intervention including surgery, radiotherapy and chemotherapy. From detection and screening for diagnosis, to therapy and follow ups, and where necessary, palliative care for those with terminal cancer; an oncologist expert witness will have vast experience with each stage of the patient’s journey. Year on year, oncology experts are researching and rapidly developing new technologies to advance the effectiveness of cancer treatments. At consultant level, oncologists usually specialise in particular areas such as breast, lung, skin, or paediatric cancers.
With increasing pressures placed upon the medical sector and an ever-diminishing budget, teamed with the intricacies and difficulties of cancer care, the necessity for an oncologist expert witness is rising.
Cancer treatment is a highly sophisticated and understandably, a highly sensitive area of medicine. As in any medical field, mistakes can be made in any stage of the patient’s journey, which can in turn bring about a court case. Cancer can be unpredictable and a mistake can have catastrophic consequences. A medico legal case may be brought forward as a result of medical malpractice, medical negligence, missed diagnosis, misdiagnosis, or adverse reactions to treatment. Since a solicitor will not likely have the depth of medical knowledge to fully comprehend such specialised evidence, they will often require the assistance of an oncologist expert witness.
By performing a series of assessments and evaluating the existing evidence, the oncologist expert witness can determine where, if any, mistakes were made and to what extent this impacted the cancer patient’s health and recovery. By writing their methods and conclusions into a comprehensive and accessible oncology report, the oncologist expert witness may enable the solicitor to shape and direct their case, thus adding strength to it. The oncology report can also be shared with the court so that an informed final decision can be made. Where necessary, the oncologist expert witness can provide their medical expert opinion to the court.
