The forensic autopsy for lawyers
Forensic evidence gathered in a postmortem autopsy is needed in both criminal and civil liability cases. This work introduces the attorney to what comprises an adequate autopsy and the various laboratory tests that provide clues to cause of death. The reliability of the procedures used to determine death is examined so the attorney will know where evidentiary weaknesses might lie. The authors note that there is not a large body of information on this topic and they include research references including relevant West Key numbers, American Law Report citations and articles from legal encyclopedias and legal periodicals.
