POLYMORPHISM OF VIOLENT HEALTH DAMAGE UNDER THE WAR AND/OR REGULAR CONDITIONS AND DIFFICULTIES OF THE EXPERTISE PROCEDURE
Institute for Forensic Medicine of the Clinic Center, Novi Sad
The differences under understanding irregular and/or war conditions in addition to many ways of health damage and/or destruction of life make the medical and expert actions very difficult. By analyzing the expertise material of the Institute for Forensic Medicine in Novi Sad, in the period from 1991 to 2000 (335 cases of deadly wounded under irregular and war conditions), and by following available data about other institutions and experts concerning these issues, it can be concluded that the findings and opinions of the experts can mainly amount to an analysis of the medical-biological facts, kinds and causes of injuries but with no possibility to analyze the generation of the violent damages done to health or of the destruction of life.
Key words: violence, irregular and/or war condition, expertise, problems
