The results of the autopsy can be essential evidence in the prosecution of a crime. Such evidence is also necessary in civil cases where tort liability is a key element of a case. Without a firm cause or manner of death. This book will make a lawyer aware of the methods that may be critical in accurately establishing the cause and manner of death, including histology, radiology, microbiology, toxicology, serology, and special forensic laboratory testing. Containing more than 200 illustrations and photos, The Forensic Autopsy is an important guide to maximizing an attorney's use of the autopsy when providing legal representation.
