Junk Science or Pseudoscience is information presented as if it represents scientific facts or data, but does not. It can also be information not properly gathered or analyzed using unbiased scientific procedures. This presentation reviews various potential Junk Science topics related to birth injury cases including: Electronic Fetal monitoring (Pros), Fetal Head compression (Pros) and Shaken Baby Syndrome (Con). This helps lawyers to confidently review medical science and ensure appropriate medical assessors are utilized for case evaluation.
