    What is a Post mortem examination?

    The autopsy begins with an external examination, where the pathologist assesses the body's external features for any visible signs of injury or trauma. The pathologist then proceeds to perform an internal examination, studying the organs within the abdomen, chest, and head. The brain is a particular focus of attention, as it plays a crucial role in understanding the cause of many deaths.

    During the examination, the medical examiner looks for evidence of diseases or injuries that could have contributed to the person's death. This process involves the collection of tissue samples, blood samples, and other specimens for further analysis. The pathologist may also perform additional tests, such as toxicology screenings, to identify any substances that may have played a role in the individual's death.


    How Will a Wrongful death attorney Use the Medical examiner’s Findings to Build a Case?

    A wrongful death lawyer from MVP Accident Attorneys collaborates closely with the medical examiner throughout the autopsy procedure. A wrongful death attorney on our legal team will carefully review the autopsy report, which provides detailed findings and diagnoses regarding the deceased person's body and the cause of death. They will pay close attention to any evidence of negligence that may have resulted in the untimely passing.

    The autopsy report becomes an important piece of evidence that can help prove liability. Our legal team will study the findings, consult with experts, and gather additional information from medical records and witnesses to build a strong case.


    Can Report Findings Be Used in Expert testimony?

    Yes. A wrongful death lawyer understands the importance of expert witness testimony and how it can help to strengthen a wrongful death lawsuit. A medical examiner can provide expert testimony in court regarding the autopsy report and their findings during the post-mortem examination. With their specialized knowledge and experience, they can offer critical insights and analysis that support the wrongful death attorney's case.

    During the trial, the expert witness is called upon to testify in court. Their testimony serves to educate the judge and jury about the medical aspects of the case, helping them understand complex medical terminology, procedures, and the significance of the autopsy findings.

    Expert witness testimony can be crucial in establishing a causal link between the defendant's actions or inactions and the cause of death. They can explain how the autopsy findings align with the alleged negligence, and discuss any specific injuries or conditions that directly resulted from the defendant's actions.

    Last year I had an accident and my car was totaled. I was very upset and didn't know what to do. A friend told me to call MVP and it was the best decision ever. They got my car paid off very fast, set me up with a doctor, and just last week I got a fat check for my pain and suffering. Thank you MVP!

    MVP Accident Attorneys was the best decision ever made. They helped me through the process and made it stress free for me. It was first accident and i was super stressed because i didn’t know what to do. I called MVP and was treated so kindly by amazing people who went over my accident with me and any questions i had. They have a whole team! I was then helped by attorney and case managers who set me up with treatment so I can get all patched up. Finally, the liens department took care of all my bills and made sure i had nothing to worry about. 11/10 would recommend them to family and friends! You cannot go wrong with MVP
