Legal Expert Consultation FAQs
Neuropsychology expert witnesses consult and share their expertise in legal matters regarding several aspects of cognitive functioning. These areas of expertise include brain injuries, cognitive disorders, neurological disease, neurodevelopmental disorders, brain dysfunction, neurocognitive problems, neuropsychological assessments, and neuropsychological testing. As an expert witness, Dr. Cristi Salinas can also testify in cases involving brain function assessments and other topics such as head injury, seizures, stroke, exposure to drugs and alcohol, brain tumors, and neuroimaging technologies such as MRIs and PET scans.
Understanding the difference between a neuropsychologist and a neuropsychiatrist is essential when choosing an expert witness for your care. At a high level, neuropsychologists are focused on the mechanics of the brain and how traumas and other impairments may impact its function.
A neuropsychologist expert witness in a legal case will work to evaluate and present the psychological impact of a person’s injury, symptoms caused by the trauma, and how it has or will impact their lives in the future.
Neuropsychiatrists can provide information concerning the use and prescription of specific medications but are not focused on comprehensive patient treatment plans. A neuropsychiatrist will not speak to cognitive and emotional issues like a neuropsychologist will.
