What is an expert witness psychologist?

Expert witness psychologists are called upon to provide reliable medical evidence during court proceedings. Whether you are involved in a criminal, civil, employment or family court case, our experts at Psymplicity Healthcare can work with you to provide accurate information about your condition, or that of your loved one, to give you the best chance at a successful outcome.

Our psychologists have had years of experience providing in-depth witness testimonies detailing various elements of a patient’s condition, from diagnosis and details of the disorder to treatment plans and progress information. At Psymplicity Healthcare, we can also provide medico-legal reports and medico-legal assessments to solicitors for a range of patient cases.

If you think you might need help from an expert witness psychologist, talk to your solicitor or contact our team directly for more information about the process.

What does an expert witness psychologist do?

At Psymplicity Healthcare, our expert witness psychologists are trained to provide in-depth, reliable information about our patient’s conditions in a legal capacity.

The process usually begins with direction from a patient’s solicitor, who will ask our team to produce either a thorough medico-legal report or appear in court to deliver a witness testimony.

We can provide a variety of assessments and reports depending on the specific case and your condition. Our team can evaluate hundreds of conditions, assess cognitive impairment, family issues, mental difficulties, personality disorders and provide detailed risk assessments.
