Forensic medical examination to determine the severity of injuries

Death may occur and not from serious, life-threatening injuries, but on a less serious or lung damage if conditions that caused complication, which ended with the death (for example, scalped head wound, complicated tetanus, leading to death). In these cases, the causal link between the damage and death there, but it is not direct, but is in the nature of random.
For the correct and objective solutions to the issues facing medical examiner during examinations concerning bodily harm, it is recommended to follow a specific research scheme. It includes:

2) the judicial-medical examination of a person aimed at the examination, presence of lesions, their medical characteristics;
3) having established the existence of damage, judge usually determines whether it is life-threatening at the time the injury. If the damage is suitable for signs of life-threatening, it belongs to the serious injury, In these cases it is not necessary to know the outcome of the damage to determine its severity. If the damage is not dangerous to life, the severity determined by the outcome (impact). Depending on the outcome of the damage and set his burden of the characteristics peculiar to the grave, less grave and light injuries.
If by the time of the examination of the outcome of the damage remains unclear, and the damage is not dangerous for life (for example, closed fracture of the femur, the bone fractures of the pelvis and others), subject to re-examination through a period during which determined the outcome of the damage. The necessity of this re-examination are specified in the expert opinion.
To make up for the bodies of investigation and court "preliminary" opinion on the severity of the bodily injury undecided when the outcome is not allowed.
