Medico-legal Reports

Medico-legal assessments provide an independent opinion regarding claims and disputes for personal and psychological injury in relation to civil and criminal law matters. For example, this could include the areas of public liability compensation, victim’s compensation (victim of crime), worker’s compensation (emotional suffering as a result of workplace bullying), accident and personal injury (a motor vehicle accident or workplace accident/incident), medical negligence, and trauma.

Medico-legal reports require a comprehensive assessment process which involves a face-to-face clinical interview and psychometric evaluation. The report generally provides an opinion as to the nature and impact of the injury or condition, determination of any relevant DSM-V diagnosis, and recommendations for the treatment and management of the injury or condition.
