Pathologists deal primarily with the research, study, and diagnosis of disease. Not only that, they focus on the cause and resulting changes to the body that a disease brings about. Pathologists are usually based in a laboratory from which they may analyse materials for evidence of disease and the manifestation of that disease within the body or given sample of cells or tissue. There are four components in particular that their work focuses on, they are: cytology (examining individual cells), histopathology (tissue samples), haematology (blood and bone marrow) and autopsy.
Since disease can begin and spread in any part of the body, the depth and breadth of medical knowledge that a pathologist possesses is vast. It is unsurprising then, that a pathology expert witness will often be appointed by a solicitor to assist in a great number of cases. From criminal law to civil law, a pathology expert witness can uncover substantial evidence, and ultimately ensure fair trial and due justice. For example, in cases of medical negligence, adverse reactions to medication, misdiagnosis, or missed diagnosis, a pathology expert witness will be able to use their laboratory skills to determine the affect a disease or a particular course of treatment has had on the body. Their evaluation of the evidence and any conclusion made from their assessments will be written into a comprehensive and accessible pathology report which can be used directly by the solicitor and in court.
Since pathology is such an extensive field within medicine, pathologists will often become experts in particular areas of the discipline. That means when a solicitor is looking to appoint a pathology expert witness, they should look for a pathologist whose expertise is closely relevant to the case. In doing so, their involvement, including the pathology report and expert opinion can not only add significant weight to the case, but also inform the direction taken by the solicitor when putting the case together.
