Experts in this field are professionals focused on their studies in epidemiology, especially in regards to infectious diseases. These experts are professionals who are especially talented at identifying determinants and patterns in the spread and arrival of epidemiological related events within specified populations. Epidemiologists that specialised in the study of infectious diseases often have extensive experience in determining the causes of disease spread, aggravating and mitigating factors to distribution, teaching and laboratory experience, analysis of data, and professional report writing.

Epidemiologists can be of great help to the legal process. They are able to provide statistical analysis of epidemiological data as well as a recount of industry standard procedure. This can prove significantly helpful in cases relating to the regulation of harmful substances or the management of hazardous materials. They are also useful for identifying patterns and trends in examining what caused the spread of infectious diseases. These investigations can often provide crucial evidence in cases. 

Experts in this area come from many professional backgrounds. Most will have come from a scientific background themselves, or have worked within a laboratory and would have extensive experience studying infectious diseases. The specific specialisation and background needed in your epidemiologist expert will be determined by the matter which requires examination.
