Forensic TBI Assessment Services

Laying the Foundation with objective evidence

OCAT® Forensic TBI Assessment

Our forensic assessment plays a crucial role in providing detailed and comprehensive insights into the cognitive and functional implications of a Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI).

Our forensic TBI assessments are integral for a few key reasons:

Confirmatory Nature
Our assessments are designed to be confirmatory, expanding upon an initial diagnosis of TBI by competent medical authority. The confirmatory nature of OCAT®’s assessment is vital as it provides an additional layer of detail and understanding to the diagnosis.
Multimodal Convergence
The assessments employ a multimodal convergent approach, using various tools and techniques such as eye tracking, computer-administered neurocognitive testing, and EEG for brain activity analysis. Our approach ensures a holistic and comprehensive evaluation of the TBI's functional impact, much like triangulating a location using multiple data points.
Convergent Validity
OCAT®'s methodology emphasizes convergent validity, where the correlation and agreement between different assessment methods and measures strengthen the assessment's findings. Our approach is crucial in ensuring the accuracy and reliability of the assessments, especially in a forensic context where such details are critically important.
Legal Relevance
The assessments are crafted to be forensically relevant, providing crucial evidence in personal injury litigation involving TBI. By detailing the nature, extent, and impact of functional brain health deficits, our assessments aid in the accurate representation of the injury’s impact in legal settings.
Objective & Scientifically Valid
OCAT®'s assessments adhere to established scientific and legal standards (both Frye and Daubert), ensuring that the results are not only credible but also highly relevant in legal proceedings. Our objectivity is essential for the continued acceptance and credibility of our reports in court.

Our multimodal assessment battery provides objective measures of brain health, including:

  • Functional-Visual Processing
  • Executive Functioning
  • Processing Speed
  • Visual and Verbal Memory
  • Attention-Shifting
  • Reaction Time
  • Motor Speed
  • Simple and Complex Attention
  • Perception of Emotions
  • Perceptions of Functional Deficits Associated with TBI
  • Other Trauma-Related symptoms that have a brain basis


We look at functional neuroimaging to see if the areas associated with functional deficits brought out from our testing overlap with the observed dysregulation in brain maps. We use this approach to demonstrate convergent validity between the findings from our assessment and the post-accident diagnosis of TBI.

OCAT®‘s forensic assessments are indispensable in their role of providing a comprehensive, scientifically rigorous, and legally relevant evaluation of functional impairments following a TBI diagnosis. Our assessments offer critical support in understanding the full extent of the injury’s impact, which is essential in both clinical and legal contexts.

Elevating Legal Cases with Forensic TBI Assessment Expertise

Forensic TBI Assessment Report

OCAT®’s forensic assessments are conducted by highly qualified psychophysiologists (PhDs) and follow an initial diagnosis of TBI made by competent medical authority. While these assessments are not a primary diagnostic tool, they serve as confirmatory evaluations, adding depth to TBI diagnoses from a brain health perspective. OCAT®’s assessments adhere to strict scientific and legal standards (Frye & Daubert). Our psychophysiologists utilize scientifically valid and reliable methods, presenting findings in a manner that is understandable and useful in a legal context. This ensures credibility and acceptance of these assessments in legal proceedings.

Relevance in Legal Context

In personal injury lawsuits, our forensic TBI assessments hold significant relevance. They provide critical information about the nature and severity of cognitive and functional deficits associated with the injury and their implications, which are essential for determining damages, compensation, and other legal considerations.

Documentation & Communication

The referral process for OCAT®’s assessments involves collaboration with competent medical authority and the use of ICD-10 codes for TBI diagnoses. This ensures alignment with recognized medical standards and practices, ensuring each assessment’s credibility and acceptance in legal proceedings.
