Evaluation of Non-Fatal Injuries
As with evaluation of injuries leading to a death, a forensic pathologist can also be helpful with the evaluation of non-fatal injuries. The pathologist can aid in the determination of the implement used to inflict the injury, estimation of the age of the injuries and give an opinion on the severity of the injuries. Any injury involving the human body can be expertly evaluated by a board-certified forensic pathologist. They can also provide valuable testimony in the court room on these injuries. Some forensic pathologists may be more comfortable and available to consult on cases involving non-fatal injuries.
