Recording Defense Medical Examinations and Psychological Evaluations and Assessments Used in a Court of Law: Is it allowed? Best Practices and Current Standards.
This new and advanced, Psychological Evaluation and Assessments webinar examines the court standards a judge may use to allow a defense medical examination to be recorded for scrutiny. Injury cases in the court system allow for mental health damages as personal injury. Mental injuries can be more subjective than physical injuries, yet sympathetic plaintiffs stand to gain thousands of dollars in money damages for them.

How can the plaintiff counter such inquiries? There will be a demand for the recording of the Defense Medical Examination or the permission to have the event observed by a third party.
Under what standards, if any, may a court allow recording the doctor’s work while it is being performed?

The courts outlined a framework for both the recording of Defense Medical Examinations and the allowance of third parties simply to observe them.
See how judges of the trial court may decide on a case-by-case basis how and even whether to allow these third-party observations or the recording of the entire Defense Medical Examination.
Inflexible rules will not do in these cases where “too many permutations of circumstances” require an inflexible rule to be used in all situations. Whose burden is it then to demonstrate those standards have been met?
