Civil cases also may require the forensic pathologist to give their expert testimony in court. This could include cases such as accidental deaths, deaths at the workplace, medical malpractice cases or even child custody hearings. The forensic pathologist may be asked to detail their autopsy findings and to give their interpretation of medical records. Testimony by the forensic pathologist in these types of cases can be valuable for all those involved. The Pathology Group has been called to testify on many civil cases for both the plaintiff and the defense.
