As Industrial Psychologists we work within the legal arena, offering comprehensive Medico-Legal / Psycho-Legal expertise with regards to Loss of Earnings, caused amongst other things by road accidents, medical negligence and workplace injuries.

Our Medico Legal / Psycho-Legal Process works to establish and express an opinion to the instructing attorneys for presentation in court, if necessary, on past and future loss of income by determining the employability of an individual, their limitations, career prospects, career plateau and earning potential, following an accident, injury at work or incident of medical negligence by assessing the consequences of the personal injury.

Our assessments take cognisance of:

  • The claimant’s socioeconomic status;
  • Family and educational background;
  • Employment history;
  • Psychometric test results (where applicable);
  • Obtained collateral information and references to other expert opinions;
  • Research of the conditions in the open labour market.

Clients are interviewed and assessed at our office in Moreleta Park, Pretoria. The assessment includes an interview guided by a self-developed, semi-structured questionnaire designed to collect specific biographical information whilst allowing flexibility for open-ended questions and the exploration of other relevant topics which arise and appear to be pertinent to the matter.

When applicable, psychometric evaluation is also conducted. Our methods and process ensure a comprehensive Medico-Legal / Psycho-Legal Report.

  • Pre-morbid vs. post morbid career paths;

The assessment will include an interview and, where applicable, psychometric evaluation.

Open-ended questions allow for flexibility enabling the assessing IP to explore other topics that might arise and which appear relevant to the matter. Psychometric evaluation will be done, should the assessing IP deem it necessary, and depending on the nature of injuries sustained by the claimant.

All the above ensures a comprehensive industrial psycho-legal report.
