Damage blunt objects

  • Falls from height
  • Damage caused by human body parts
  • Damages that arise due to compression or impact of any, even small, square of the object, usually denoted as bruised, i.e. resulting from blunt solid object. Such damage in forensic practice is encountered most often.
    Despite the diversity of such damages, are at the basis of the General mechanism by which violated the anatomical integrity of tissues of an organ or its function. As at impact and compression (compression) blunt objects (more or less sharply) produce a squeeze action due to its surface. Usually when this tissue remain together, and if they do there are separated already kneaded the soft tissue. The direction of the external exposure, surface properties traumatic subject and value of the kinetic energy - the factors determining morphological peculiarities of damage. Among the many subjects, damage, which are considered as personal injury blunt object, you can call a part of the moving transport, various items, having a flat or uneven surface (stone, stick), and also parts of the body: the fist, foot, head and other
    The action of damaging of the object at an angle of 90 to the surface of the body depending on the kinetic energy and hitting the square can cause various damages of the more striking the surface, the less (at other equal conditions) are expressed traumatisation in the place of impact. At the forefront are the phenomena shaking body. Gaps parenchymatous organs (liver, kidney, spleen). You can even break in organs such as the heart, lungs, and their displacement that occurs during transport the injured or when falling from a great height.
    With the reduction of the area of the damaging of the object (at the point of impact.) damage increase, because kinetic energy is concentrated into a small area. Depending on the properties of hitting parts of the subject arise damage (bruises, wounds, fractures) of one or the other.
