COVID-19 Update: Operations Are Uninterrupted. Dr. Leckart And Associates Are Available To Existing And Potential Clients.
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?
Dr. Bruce Leckart is a widely-published researcher, author and university professor who has been reviewing medical-legal psych reports for over 30 years. He is firmly dedicated to eradicating poorly-written psych reports and helping attorneys win their psych cases by writing Apricots™. For the last thirty plus years, Dr. Leckart has read and critiqued about 50,000 psych reports.
Dr. Leckart contributed the content for the best selling book called When I Say No, I Feel Guilty and subsequently authored the popular psych book, Up from Boredom, Down from Fear. Dr. Leckart’s most recent book, Psychological Evaluations in Litigation: A Practical Guide for Attorneys and Insurance Adjusters, the most recent edition of which was published in 2011, is available for free download here. Dr. Leckart is currently a consultant and an expert witness.
