Plan Your Next Deposition Of A Psych Doctor With A Free Telephone Consultation With Dr. Leckart!

Is This You?

You are an attorney or insurance adjuster who received a psych report in which a psych doctor diagnosed a disorder and concluded that the applicant/plaintiff has had a mental injury and is mentally disabled. Do you want to find the substantial flaws in the doctor’s report and conclusions?

The major problem with all psychological and psychiatric reports is misdiagnosis. Once an attorney can get deposition or trial testimony from the doctor conclusively demonstrating that there is no support for the doctor’s diagnosis all of the conclusions about a compensable mental injury get thrown out the proverbial window. 

So now the question is how do you cross-examine the psych doctor?
