When a person is injured on the job, it is common for a third party, such as an insurance company, an attorney, a medical professional, or the court to request an Independent Medical Examination (IME) by a forensic psychologist specifically trained in performing neurological testing. It is the forensic psychologist’s job to assess the degree of psychological trauma that may have been caused directly by the accident in question. These assessments are made through administering a battery of sensitive testing, including malingering tests, to detect and substantiate the examiners findings in regards to abilities, functioning, areas of difficulty, and any psychiatric disorders.
