Medico-legal or psycho-legal reports frequently form the basis of expert evidence in a court or other tribunal. They may be requested by a legal adviser or another party to assess psychological injuries or impairment, recommended treatment and estimates of costs.
These reports include background information and psychological history, treatment provided and expert opinion on treatment options, likely prognosis and likely need for further assessments.
Forensic psychological assessments of clients are often used as expert evidence in a range of cases including:
- General court psychological reports
- Dept. of Human Services (DHS) requested reports
- Family and Child Law
- Assessment of Mental Capacity
- Personal injury
- Assessment of non-pathological criminal capacity
- Offender treatment reports
- Risk assessments for general, violent and sexual offenders
