This aim of this book is to demystify the medical and legal aspects of bringing a claim for psychological injuries. In this respect it has two potential audiences. Firstly, lawyers and claims handlers for whom it is hoped that it will help to explain the terms which appear in medical reports and often appear as incomprehensible technical jargon and concepts. Hopefully it will set them on the road to asking the right questions and making the right assessments in the litigation.

Second, it is aimed at medical practitioners who may enter the medico-legal world and whilst their expertise is in no doubt, may have questions as to what may be expected of them in a different forum. It is hoped that it will provide them with guidance as to the sorts of issues they will be expected to address in the legal process.
