Often, personal injury claims are settled through the legal process in the courts. Appropriately trained mental health clinicians may play an important role in this process by providing comprehensive evaluations that assist the judge or jury to determine if the defendant in the case has caused injury or harm through his or her action or inaction by breaching his or her duty to the defendant. This chapter provides information on how to develop a niche practice involving providing personal injury evaluations. It reviews the education and training needed, describes the joys and challenges of this type of work, and offers guidance on the business aspects of this niche practice. Resources are shared to assist those with an interest in developing expertise in this area of practice.
