When experts testify about malingering and traumatic brain injury: A study of damage awards

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

The influence of neuropsychological testimony was investigated with mock jurors in a simulated civil trial involving mild traumatic brain injury. Participants (N = 251) were randomly assigned to one of eight conditions in a 2x2x2 design: cognitive impairment evidence present or absent; malingering evidence present or absent; and language complexity high or low. Results indicated that evidence of cognitive impairment significantly increased award decisions and evidence of malingering had an adverse effect on damage awards, but not to the degree expected. Language complexity did not appear to influence award decisions. Implications for expert witnesses and attorneys were explored.
