IME's, Psychological, and Psychiatric Evaluations
Where traumatic brain injury or other physical trauma may be involved, our clinical psychologists and psychiatrists evaluate claims of mental, emotional, and behavioral injuries. Through psychodiagnostic and neuropsychological testing, the experts of the Forensic Psychology Group assess the plaintiff's claimed injuries to his or her intellectual ability, emotional reactivity, and behavioral regulation and control. Our expert evaluations and reports aid in determining whether or not damages exist. If it is determined that an injurious event did exist, the forensic expert will be able to assess the level and severity of distress or disability as a result of an injury.
Forensic Specialties and Expertise
Commonly reported psychiatric and psychological reactions to injuries may include post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), depression, anxiety disorders, as well as somatic complaints (such as migraines, gastrointestinal problems, nausea, vomiting, colitis, and skin disorders) and cognitive impairments. In survivors of electrical and high voltage injuries, immediate manifestations may include altered consciousness, confusion, disorientation, and amnesia. Our experts have extensive experience in assessing and evaluating the full range of symptoms resulting from personal injuries, including claims of chronic pain, personality changes, flashbacks, and memory deficits as well as malingering and deception.
