Medical Legal Reports

If you find yourself experiencing legal issues in either Family, Civil  or Criminal courts, or have insurance issues such as motor vehicle accidents, personal injury, public liability compensation or workers compensation cases, our psychologists can provide assessment and reporting to help you communicate the information needed to address your matter.

We follow appropriate standards and instructions issued by lawyers and abide by relevant legislation (e.g Supreme and State Courts.) Our team are also State Insurance Regulatory Authority (SIRA) accredited to provide help with your Workcover and CTP matters.
