Numerous books exist on traumatic brain injury, yet none comprehensively cover evaluation from a clinical standpoint. They also do not explain the forensic issues around TBI. This text provides a step-by-step guide to conducting a competent, thorough evaluation of a traumatically brain-injured patient. In addition, it offers methods for determining causation, malingering, symptom magnification, and assessment of impairment levels for disability claims. Clinicians and forensic specialists will benefit from the book's practical and pragmatic approach to comprehensively evaluating the TBI patient and presenting the evaluation in the courtroom.
