My Psychologist Adelaide has a background in psychology and law that enables the provision of high quality, skilled medico-legal assessments and reports. Our psychological medico-legal assessments and reports are comprehensive and informative.
We can provide treatment services for psychological disorders that are identified in such reports. We not only identify psychological issues but we can also help to resolve them.
Psychological fees payable for such assessments and reports are set according to the current ReturntoWorkSA psychological fee schedule.
We may ask for pre-payment for Motor Vehicle Accident and ReturntoWorkSA psychological assessments and counselling. We do ask for the claim number and other details to be provided to us so we can liaise with case managers to ensure prompt payment of invoices. If payment is not made within 14 days of the psychological consultation then we will seek payment from the requesting solicitor and/or client.
In medical negligence and common law personal injury matters, fees payable for such medico-legal assessments and reports will be based on the current recommended psychological fee set by the Australian Psychological Society of which we are a member.
Pre-payment of fees in these matters is common practice in the industry and My Psychologist reserves the right to request pre-payment or a fee payment arrangement based on the client’s personal financial circumstances.
If you require any more information regarding medico-legal assessments, please contact My Psychologist on 0427 277 237.
Legal Practitioner Information
We have developed this legal practitioner information as a guide to highlight the medico-legal assessments and other services we can offer.
We are able to provide expert medico-legal assessments and comprehensive reports for a variety of reasons.
We are always looking to form new referral relationships with solicitors who share our values. These include providing a high quality professional service that caters for a claimant’s personal and specific psychological needs.
My Psychologist is experienced in providing informative and comprehensive psychological medico-legal assessments and reports in matters relating to personal injury such as ReturntoWorkSA, medical negligence, victims of crime. Vocational, cognitive and memory assessments can also be undertaken.
We pride ourselves on developing and maintaining close working relationships with solicitors, case/claims managers, rehabilitation consultants, employers and treating practitioners (medical and allied health).
We provide expert opinion about psychological disorders arising out of injury. We can recommend treatment, stability of injury, permanent impairment and impact on activities of daily living and work capacity.
It is not uncommon for people to have Anxiety and Mood Disorders following an injury. These can include Post-traumatic Stress Disorder, Adjustment Disorder, Somatic Symptom and Related Disorders and Major Depressive Disorder.
It is sometimes wrongly assumed that physical injuries do not have associated psychological symptoms. Through psychological assessment and medico-legal reporting, we can help identify conditions that will add to a compensation claim and also provide psychological treatment to stabilise symptoms to help improve a client’s mental health.
We are always happy to start a new referral relationship with solicitors who share our passion to deliver individualised, expert, friendly and complete care.
