The Role of a Psychiatrist Expert Witness

A psychiatrist expert witness specialises in making sense of the enigma of the human mind. Humans can commit crimes that many of us would deem incomprehensible and unfathomable, but a psychiatry expert witness can make sense of them. Expert witness psychiatry is a discipline that falls within the branch of medicine and focuses on mental/ behavioural disorders. A psychiatry expert witness specialises in determining whether the accused has mental health issues, an anxiety or mood disorder, if substance abuse is involved, or if they have a form of dementia. An expert witness psychiatrist does this by interviewing the individual and assessing their symptoms, medical history and daily living habits in order to determine whether these factors had an impact on their criminal activity. If you think your case might require a medical expert witness you can read about our medical expert witness service here.

Commonly Requested Expert Psychiatric Reports:

Psychiatric reports for court are essential components to court cases where a mental illness, disability, or disorder is concerned with a given case. In performing psychiatric assessments, the psychiatric expert witness will gather highly specialised information. This must be documented in a psychiatric report for court should their involvement be given any weight or regard. More than that, the psychiatric report must be written in a well-structured and accessible way, allowing the non-specialists of the court to fully comprehend the evidence that the psychiatric expert witness supplies. The types of psychiatric reports for court are wide-ranging, since the discipline incorporates such vast and complex fields. Below are some of the most commonly requested expert psychiatric reports.

  • Adult psychiatric reports
  • Elderly psychiatric report
  • Child/adolescent psychiatric reports
  • Forensic psychiatry expert witness reports
  • Certificate of capacity
  • Second opinion reports
  • Mental health tribunals
  • Anxiety and depression
  • Psychosis including schizophrenia
  • Personality disorders
  • PTSD
  • Capacity to Instruct
  • Impact of mental health upon parenting

Expert Witness Psychiatrists For Forensic and Clinical Cases

On the other hand, an adult psychiatrist expert witness can provide diagnostic tests to determine psychiatric disorders in adults such as bipolar, anxiety, personality disorders etc. A psychiatrist report from an expert witness in psychiatry whether they  are a forensic psychiatry expert or an adult psychiatry expert,  can significantly strengthen a legal case and help solicitors understand the complex neurological issues.
