Why is it important to understand Death Investigation?
Fractions of an inch or an alteration in an event, or series of events, may be the only difference between a serious bodily injury or death.
Death investigation is not limited to homicide – a homicide investigator may not understand death investigation, and therefore personal injury investigation.
Any component of death investigation can be applied to personal injury investigation – from the chain of events leading to the injury and/or death, to the mechanisms of injury or death.
The circumstances, Cause and Manner of Serious Bodily Injury or Death, can impact:
- Insurance – including accidental double indemnity
- Inheritance – including spouse survivorship, biological and step children
- Civil, Criminal and Probate lawsuits
- How the families and victims cope
Because, as Voltaire said, "To the living we owe respect. To the dead we owe the truth."
The following types of cases may involve legal investigations, particularly personal injury and death:
- Personal Injury and Negligence
- Consumer Safety and Product Liability
- Occupational Safety and Workplace Incidents
- Wrongful and Equivocal Death
- Motor Vehicle Collisions
- Medical Malpractice
- Crime and Incident Scenes
- Assault and Bodily Injury
- Elder & Child Abuse and Neglect
- Felony Criminal Defense
