Expert witnesses what are they? An expert witness is a person who has specialised knowledge in a specific field allowing them to present their opinion about the facts of a case during legal proceedings. What our expert witnesses do: our expert witnesses can assist you in court proceedings ranging from criminal cases to employment cases. Our expert witnesses and psychologists complete medico-legal reports (involving both medical and legal aspects) on mental health and neuropsychological injury for criminal, employment, personal injury, family, immigration and educational cases.
Neuropsychology expert medico-legal assessments are prepared for personal injury claims including: Complex brain and spinal injury cases, where compensation is required for road traffic accident claims and other neuropsychological injury claims. These often include claims for post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), anxiety and depression. In criminal law, our medicolegal psychologists frequently assess witness evidence, fitness to plead, criminal responsibility, special measures, ability to serve a custodial sentence and suitability for parole. Psychologists and psychiatrists are different, while they both trained to assess people the assessment methods they use may differ with psychologists tending to use more objective tests.
