Benefits of Forensic Expert Medical Witness Testimony

A pathologist is a physician who performs an autopsy. It is also known as the postmortem exam, necropsy, or obduction. Keep in mind that the procedure is performed for medical or legal purposes. The pathologist conducts a forensic autopsy if legal experts suspect the cause of death is due to delinquency.

The professional conducts a clinical autopsy to determine the cause of death. It is done for cases in which the cause of death is unknown. In some cases, the court requires conducting an external examination in others; a physician performs dissection of the body, known as the internal exam.
