Abstract

A sample of 100 neuropsychologically normal worker's compensation claimants was evaluated with the Trail Making Test, the Logical Memory Test of the Wechsler Memory Scale-Revised (WMS-R) (immediate and delayed) and the (MMPI) to determine the appropriateness of the Logical Memory norms for individuals in litigation. Results indicate these claimants performed below normal, possibly due to depression or poor motivation while age and education were not important factors. The danger of using such norms uncritically in litigation cases is discussed.
