Medico Legal Work

Legal BooksMedico-legal work is an assessment or report prepared in the context of actual or potential civil litigation.

Detailed assessments are provided for those people suffering from trauma, for example road traffic accidents (RTAs).

Up to date assessment tools as set out by Scott and Sembi (2002). Where a recommendation, in medico-legal matters, is that assessment for Posttraumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) should follow a three-stage process:

  • Unstructured interview
  • Structured interview
  • Psychometric assessment

PTP's principal Psychologist has completed the Bond Solon training in excellence in report writing and providing evidence in court. 

Bond Solon training is seen as an essential requirement for Psychological practitioners to be able to correctly present evidence for the court process in line with current standard practice.
