There are different evidential stages at court trials, including evidentiary hearing, questioning of witnesses, examination of the crime scene, event reconstruction, temporary confiscation of objects, search of dwellings and persons, control of suspici-ous transactions, and sample taking.
Forensic expertise is an evidentiary action when experts from different fields provide truthful information about a case since the Courts do not always have an insight into particular field of expertise.
Forensic medical expertise takes a special role in forensic expertise required in almost all trials, especially in criminal and civil proceedings. In these cases medical experts give testimony of medical truth necessary in assisting the Court to establish the legal truth. Acta Ophthalmologica 2016;42(2):20-24.
