The most complete summary of electrical injury issues for the electrical injury litigator and investigator. Electric currents and electromagnetic radiation, both ionizing and nonionizing, can produce harmful biological effects in humans; these effects are the subject of an ever growing number of lawsuits. This book provides an introduction to the biological effects of electric currents and EMFs and the state of engineering and medical knowledge.
Part I explains what forensic electrical ....
Review By: Derrick J. Pounder, Science & Justice 2000 - May 13, 2000
[This book] is a mighty tome . . . but it is an easy read . . . It contains an enormous amount of factual information encompassing electrical engineering, medicine and law . . . Within the 40 chapters just about everything imaginable related to electrical injuries can be found . . . A rich source of useful information.
Review By: Kenneth R. Foster, IEEE Spectrum - July 1, 2000
[This book] will appeal most directly to forensic engineers, and surely deserves a place on their shelves. It may also be useful as a reference in courses in the subject.

Summarizes electrical injury issues for the electrical injury litigator and technical investigator. The first section introduces electrical engineers to forensic engineering, legal terminology, voluntary standards, electrical code and regulations, and attorneys to a few basic concepts of electrical engineering. Part two addresses the medical aspects of electrical injuries, particularly the detailed effects on various body parts caused by electricity. The legal aspects of electrical injuries are emphasized in the final section, with actual case studies illustrating the legal principles involved with electricity.

Electrical engineer Nabours; Raymond Fish, who moved from electrical engineering to biomedical engineering and is now a practitioner of emergency medicine; and Paul F.Hill, a retired law school librarian and attorney in Nebraska, explore the whole gamut of interaction between their three fields regarding electrical injuries. They cover forensic electrical engineering, medical evidence of electrical injuries, and legal aspects of electrical injuries. The third (edition) incorporates recent US Supreme Court rulings on expert testimony and new information on arc-fault circuit interrupters, utility protective relaying, static discharge hazard during gasoline refueling, and other aspects. It also includes new case studies.
