When a forensic pathologist performs an autopsy, he seeks to determine whether the cause of death was disease, medical treatment or injury. The pathologist examines the deceased to establish a manner of death that is legally admissible in a court of law. The five manners of legally admissible death are natural, accidental, homicide, suicide and undetermined. A natural cause of death includes death by a disease, such as cancer. An example of accidental death is when someone falls off a ladder and dies of related head injuries. A homicide is death by foul play, and suicide is when someone takes his or her own life. Undetermined is assigned when the cause of death isn't identifiable.
