Abstract

Medical witnesses and attorneys are very frequently called upon to consider the claims of persons who having been more or less severely injured by an accident, attribute the subsequent state of their health entirely to this cause and bring suit against the railroad company, or the parties causing the injury, for damages.

With those instances where the patient's health and activities are permanently and directly impaired by an injury received from the carelessness of a common carrier, we shall not
