Outcome after head, neck and spinal trauma: a medicolegal guide
There is a huge number of accidents each year and the burden on physicians to provide medical reports or to act as expert witnesses on possible outcome/prognosis of injury is ever increasing. Until now, this has necessitated much research and the use of many different reference works, as information on prognosis after various forms of cranial and spinal trauma is scattered throughout numerous journals and textbooks. However, the editors of this new book recognized a need for one definitive work to cover both the principles and clinical assessment of cranio-spinal trauma, and have recruited experts to contribute chapters in their fields of expertise to provide a complete reference guide and source of further reading. Divided into six sections for easy reference, Outcome after Head, Neck and Spinal Trauma provides key information in an easily-accessible format and should be an essential purchase for clinicians and all those involved in assessing and compensating the victims of cranial or spinal trauma. Lawyers with an interest in accident litigation should also find this a useful purchase.
