Through a quick review of current knowledge on the “whiplash” has sought to emphasize the many ways that the coroner should investigate before giving an opinion on the quantification of the damage to the person and on the necessity and reasonableness of medical expenses. Standardized assessment that might appear because of the narrow range provided by the tables of the law but in fact requires a careful analysis of health records are produced, a careful evaluation of the clinical picture compared to the symptoms reported by the injured and a strict application of criteriology coroner. The coroner has to reconstruct the clinical procedures of the injured from day to day event in which the visit is made to ascertain the consequences and relate causally to the left as objectified. It is clear that certification incomplete, and especially without examination do not help you express an opinion on the claim is modal in terms of efficiency, in determining that particular injury and consequently the particular disability being evaluated, or express an opinion on ‘adequacy of medical costs in the absence of clear evidence of what the best approach to therapy and rehabilitation to be adapted. All this leaves room for dispute that if managed by consultants inattentive to criteriology coroner may give rise to “interpretative disasters” that instead of creating clarity and helps to create confusing incomprehensibility.
