Personal Injury Psychiatric Medicolegal Reports

personal-injury-medico-legal-200x300Personal Injury refers to ‘any disease and any impairment of a person’s physical or mental condition’ (s.38, Limitation Act 1980). The literature documents that psychiatric damage is an injury that can cause anxiety neurosis or reactive depression.

In relation to psychiatry, in order for a personal injury case to be relevant it must be proven that the claimant has sustained a ‘recognisable psychiatric illness’. A recognisable psychiatric illness is not shock, grief, distress or some other emotion, but a positive illness ‘recognised as such by psychiatrists’.
