Abstract

Industrial accident is an area that forensic specialists expertise on. The courts in different cities asked for reports about three injury cases due to industrial accidents from our department of forensic medicine. Each report should include the disability rate and the duration of unfunctionality.

Injuries of the upper extremity with the characteristic injury findings are often come across in such accidents. Our aims to present the current three cases are to have forensic medicine specialists be aware of characteristic signs of industrial accidents and the importance of the expert reports preparation concerning industrial accidents.
