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.

Neuropsychology expert medico-legal reports 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, we frequently assess witness evidence, fitness to plead, criminal responsibility, 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.

The client then completes intelligence tests. A parent and another professional may also complete the Adaptive Behaviour Assessment System (ABAS-3) to help diagnose a learning disability.
The client is then observed using the Autism Diagnostic Observation Schedule. At the end of the process, you will a receive a comprehensive report.
