Abstract

This paper deals with the unique FORTIS system for parametrization of injuries, which allows one to make the

scoring of injuries resulting from accidents, while it offers possibilities for its utilisation for the needs of the

road transportation experts or biomechanics during the analysis of vehicle - pedestrian accident cases or for

forensic biomechanical assessment of a course of other accidents. The work presents forensic investigation

of fatal injuries of pedestrians and an assessment carried out via the FORTIS system in comparison with

AIS. The output is a complex parametrization of accident consequences that can be used for the needs of

traffic accident analysts and experts in other forensic sciences in calculations in a simulation program or

using other forensic exact methods.
