Our main goal is to provide a valuable service to the bereaved families. Our autopsy reports provide a detailed insight into the cause of death and contributing factors.


The most important result of the autopsy and anatomical pathology review is closure and peace of mind. In some cases, the autopsy findings provide solid evidence for legal proceedings.


Contact us and provide a brief description of your case. A telephone consultation will be necessary to determine if we can provide assistance. If you decide that our expertise and resources might benefit your case, we will discuss costs involved and schedule the autopsy.

How families benefit from the autopsy

For families, the autopsy has both tangible and psychological benefits. Uncertainty regarding the cause of an individual's death can delay payment of insurance benefits, or execution of the will.

  • Knowing the specific cause of death may ease the stress of the unknown, resolve complicated issues surrounding the death, and be comforting to the family and friends.

  • Discovering inherited, familial or infectious diseases may help through early diagnosis and treatment, and in family planning.

  • Uncovering evidence of a work-related disease might lead to compensation for the family.

  • Providing crucial information for the settling of insurance claims or death benefits may result in better benefits for the family.

  • Finding that diagnosis and treatment was appropriate or inappropriate, which may help clear legal disputes.
