Forensic Medicine

Forensic medicine mainly deals with examination and assessment of individuals who have been—or are suspected to have been—injured or killed by external influence such as trauma or intoxication, but also of individuals who are suspected of having injured another person. This means that not only victims and suspects of crime, but also suicides and accidental fatalities are examined by a specialist in forensic medicine (or forensic pathology). Individuals with nonfatal injuries after intentionally self-inflicted or accidental injuries or intoxication are, on the other hand, usually handled exclusively within the health-care system.
