When choosing a plastic surgery expert witness, it’s important to choose an expert witness who is familiar with the necessary code of ethics. Historically, there has been no real formal code which expert witnesses should follow. However, in 2010 attorney Robert Ambrogi put together a code of ethics which aims to provide a guide for expert witness and how they should behave in an ethical way.
In particular, the code outlines the importance of impartiality, confidentiality, conflicts of interest, and professionalism. With regards to impartiality, Ambrogi states: “A. An expert witness shall at all times serve with independence and objectivity, without regard to the consequences to the client.
These guidelines help to define in what way an expert witness - including a plastic surgery expert witness - can and should remain impartial and objective. Furthermore, with regards to confidentiality, Ambrogi defines two important points: “A. An expert witness shall strive to understand the rules of confidentiality applicable to the case and jurisdiction in which the expert is retained.
