PMID:  20552945     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
This article relates primarily to the causes of disability or death in the context of claims for damages, workers' compensation, motor vehicle insurance benefits, disability insurance, claims under some other types of insurance, military pensions for disabilities and deaths resulting from military service, compensation for the victims of crime, and claims under some other social insurance or social security systems. The focus is on expert evidence in such cases, the demand for "scientific proof", and related problems. The article is particularly relevant to disabilities or deaths that were caused by some event or exposure that occurred decades earlier.
