This article provides the neurologist with simple methods that can be applied to all clinical neurologic evaluations, regardless of the future potential for litigation. This article defines the appropriate application and interpretation of conventional neurologic, neurophysiologic, neuropsychological, and biochemical diagnostic tests that are sensitive to neurotoxic exposures. This article also provides the neurologist with guidance in the preparation of clinical findings and tips on the recognition and use of supportive literature that is often required for admissibility of evidence at a deposition or testimony.
