Reasons for a Non-Fatal Injury Evaluation

In a criminal or civil matter, attorneys may dispute the causes for injuries sustained by a party to the case. For example, a prosecutor may claim that the defendant assaulted their client, and it may be the defense’s position that these injuries were self-inflicted. As in many legal matters, the outcome of the case may hinge on the most persuasive argument. With a non-fatal injury evaluation:

  • Dr. Chundru can support attorneys in finding explanations for injuries based on science and experience or in strengthening an attorney’s argument by educating the attorney on the science. It is not uncommon that the initial interpretation of an injury by a doctor is wrong based on known science.
  • Dr. Chundru will render an opinion based on scientific fact. The explanation of what could or could not have been the cause of an injury will follow from analysis of all of the resources available.
  • Attorneys will be able to explain complex medical concepts in a clear and simple way. Dr. Chundru helps his clients understand the findings of a non-fatal injury evaluation and to present them to a layperson audience.

What Clients Can Expect With a Non-Fatal Injury Evaluation

As part of initial consultations, Dr. Chundru will speak with prospective clients about their case, learning about the parties involved, legal strategy, and injuries that were sustained. Attorneys frequently want to know whether the argument that they wish to make will be supported with a non-fatal injury evaluation. In some cases, Dr. Chundru can provide a yes or no answer in this preliminary discussion. In other cases, he requires further time and information to investigate.

Once a client decides to work with Dr. Chundru, he will typically review resources that include:

  • Medical records.
  • Laboratory reports.
  • Photographs of the injuries.
  • Police reports.

Dr. Chundru does not generally need to speak with the injured individual. However, there may be details that an attorney or law enforcement representative should pursue based on his analysis.

The result of Dr. Chundru’s review will be a comprehensive report. Depending on the client’s needs, he can typically deliver the report within two weeks of receiving all necessary resources. Clients may choose to combine Dr. Chundru’s non-fatal injury evaluation with other services that he offers, such as his testimony as a witness in court proceedings.
