Crush Injury Component (C/N)

Crush injury component is the concept that an injury involving severe compression or crushing of the body leaves evidence of that type of injury.

Dr. Roberta Carter investigated the body of a young man who InGen Public Relations officer Ed Regis claimed had been crushed in a construction accident. She found that the body did not match the report of injury because there was no crush injury component to the wounds, instead that they were consistent with an animal mauling.
