Psychological Tests

Posted Friday, August 7, 2015 by Chris Thayer

As your personal injury case unfolds, your Washington State personal injury attorney may tell you that you’ve been asked to complete psychological testing. Depending on your condition, this is quite common. Defense attorneys often require plaintiffs to submit to such tests, which are typically performed by psychiatrists, psychologists and neuropsychologists. There are so many psychiatric and psychological tests and many variations of the most popular ones.

Further complicating matters is the fact that there are often many ways to administer and score such tests. All of these factors can lead to confusion for personal injury lawyers. Defense expert witnesses–usually doctors–use this confusion to their advantage in many cases. They refuse to allow plaintiffs’ attorneys to view raw test data and strictly provide summary reports. Your attorney may be expected to trust the accuracy of the report, but it could be detrimental to your case.
