my husband was involved in a road accident he has front lobe brain damage. The neuropsychologist made a report saying he had personality change severe aggression and bad memory also an inability to process information quickly enough to make an informed decision. He now only has an IQ of 80.
He is involved in litigation with me and even though I provided a full report of his brain damage his solicitor has chosen to believe he is normal. He has charged him thousands of pounds in fees after ignoring the report I gave him. Instead he wrote to his family Doctor who knows nothing about the report and asked if he was mentally competent. His Doctor said he was. He can live his everyday life if he is not troubled but he cannot reason and becomes aggressive when I try to talk to him.
I am told that a GP is not qualified to override a finding of a mental health expert. Is this true.
My husband received £500.000 for his brain injury.
