Physical Liabilities

By | January 4, 2013

In professional liability trials many times you can see that the victim has been affected psychically in a meaningful way. Even if the disorder is evident and difficult question, the determination of the damage and the foundation of the conclusions of the expert opinion has some particularities that should be taken into account throughout the evaluation process. Many times we find points of expertise developed with the advice of medical professionals, psychiatrists and psychologists in the answers to the demand from the involved social, clinical and insurance works. We know that when requests for explanations, and despite the brief procedural times with parts that have to do it eventually, questions will appear from all of them with the intention of distorting both the development and the expert conclusions. In the same way in the development of skill points, questions and objections ranging to be raised with expert advice that is not often found in other causes. For these reasons, whether concerned a preliminary or an expert opinion, the psychologist should bear in mind these features from the start of his task, without losing sight of the context in which is developing the work that was entrusted to him, and thus capable of supporting a truth that will be questioned. And sometimes with unusual resources. As always, in each particular case and depending on the existing disorder, the choice of psychodiagnosis techniques will be an important factor to substantiate the results from the clinical evaluation and give the findings a consistency that resists possible gadgets that will be used as sustenance to the questioning. For obvious reasons was not a good idea to perform a detail of the available spectrum of techniques, but surely the reader may represent the image of a process psychodiagnosis in which included the administration of unusual diagnostic instruments alongside those who are in all the assessments. Get out of the structure of a standard battery, include psychometric aspects, substantiate the diagnostic conclusions in a process that evidences a proper coherence intertest, poses special difficulties at the time of preparing objections to an opinion and plays into a truth about the reality of a victim.
