In attempted murder, assault, and domestic violence cases, the focus is often on Great Bodily Injury or Significant Bodily Injury enhancements. Our experts will review the injuries in the case to first ensure that they were caused the way the allegations state and also help the attorney assess the severity of the injury, the required treatments, and any expected complications. Photographs may be used to differentiate sharp trauma from blunt force trauma; help with the identification of patterned injuries; and clarify the timeline of injury. Our reports will provide opinions on causation and/or mechanism.
We are often asked to review cases related to bruising, abrasions, and other soft tissue trauma. Our nurses are experts in these areas and able to provide opinions related to the age of the injuries, patterned injuries, and whether the injuries are consistent with the allegations.
