Psychological Testing

Posted Monday, December 14, 2015 by Chris Thayer

Our Seattle injury lawyer often receives questions about psychological testing when the defense requests it in a personal injury case. Your attorney should understand the different types of tests and know how they are scored so that they can protect your rights.

  1. Learn about test. Your lawyer should know what tests might be used and should research them. They will know if the test is a proper screening device and if he or she followed protocol.
  2. Read up on mental health issues and conditions in the DSM–IV, the main reference book for understanding these.
  3. Obtain raw data from the test instead of relying on the defense report.Seek a second option from your own expert.

You can reach Chris Thayer, our Seattle injury lawyer, at (866) 884-2417 for help in understanding your rights and how to deal with psychological testing.
