9781780434766: Mason's Forensic Medicine for Lawyers: Sixth Edition

This is an essential and accessible introductory guide to forensic medicine for legal practitioners in the UK, particularly those in criminal law. Designed also to guide medical experts through the various UK legal and court systems, the book deals with definitions of offenses, the investigation of sudden deaths, and the key duties of the expert who gives evidence in court. This sixth edition covers: an introduction to relevant clinical terms * the systems of the body and autopsy procedure * chapters on the main areas of forensic medicine, including injuries from assaults, firearms, asphyxia, water, and fire * specialist chapters on non-accidental injury to children, sexual offenses, odontology, toxicology, and the care of detainees * all the relevant statutory and common law offenses * the UK's Coroners and Justice Act 2009 in conjunction with the relevant Rules and Guidance * the Criminal and Civil Procedure Rules and relevant case law on the role and duties of experts * primary and secondary legislation relating to care of detainees and investigation of deaths in custody (e.g. the Police and Criminal Evidence Act 1984). Completely revised, the book is written from the viewpoint of the UK legal practitioner and medical expert witness. To this end, it provides practical guidance, including diagrams on new developments and problem areas in forensic medicine. It also offers suggestions for further reading, which will enable the practitioner to understand expert reports, as well as identify potential areas where further expertise is necessary. [Subject: Medical Law, Forensic Law]

Review:

Mason's Forensic Medicine for Lawyers remains a most valuable addition to the practitioner's law library, whether for a criminal trial; or for a civil personal injury claim... -- Sally Ramage * The Criminal Lawyer * ...a welcome, and welcoming, guide to medicine and medical issues presented by the interaction between law and what is a daunting and complex topic...The book navigates practitioners through complex issues with reference to clearly drawn diagrams and simple explanations, seemingly neither patronising nor inappropriately assuming knowledge...packs a lot in for a relatively modest price. It is a useful addition to every chambers or firm. -- Dan Bunting * UK Criminal Law Blog *
