Valuing Psychiatric Injuries Training - Quantum

Psychological Injury Valuations


Our online training course looks at psychiatric injuries and the evidence you need to prove and value an injury claim.

The course covers the difference between primary and secondary victims and their prospects of succeeding in a claim. We also cover the different kinds of psychiatric injury, experts and possible treatments.

This course is a module in our Quantum Personal Injury Training Suite, but can also be viewed as a standalone e-learning course.


A personal injury claim doesn't just involve physical injuries, a claim can also extend to include emotional and psychological injuries if the claimant has suffered mental distress as a result of an incident and another party's negligence.

After you have completed this course, you will:

  • Know what a psychiatric injury is
  • Understand the differences between primary and secondary victims
  • Be aware of what treatment is available for psychiatric injuries
  • Be able to identify the evidence in support of a claim for psychiatric injuries
  • Understand which experts are appropriate to provide expert evidence on psychiatric injuries
  • Know where to find the brackets for psychiatric injury in the Judicial College Guidelines
