Expert witness assessments
At the London Neurocognitive Clinic, we have a team of clinical psychologists, neuropsychologists and neuropsychiatrists who can act as expert witnesses. We can act in this capacity for either the claimant, or the defendant of a dispute.
Why is an assessment necessary?
Where cognitive, emotional, or behavioural difficulties have arisen, we are able to undertake an assessment to better understand the problems an individual may be facing. When conducting assessments, we strive to be as thorough and detailed as possible, evaluating an individual’s strengths and weaknesses, and providing recommendations for further care. This allows us to have as much information as possible when acting as an expert witness.
How will the assessment be carried out?
The assessments will be completed in a professional and objective manner, while accounting for any extenuating circumstances or important history relevant to the individual or the case in question. Our psychologists and psychiatrists are well-equipped with the knowledge required to interpret the findings of your assessments.
What happens after the assessment?
Our clinicians will prepare comprehensive reports required in a timely manner. All expert witnesses will provide any findings in an impartial and uninfluenced opinion. They will be available to attend court, as and when required to do so.
