Life Care Planning/Cost of Future Care Evaluation

  • Based on published standards of practice and methodology, we provide a detailed plan for individuals who have experienced catastrophic injury or have chronic health needs.
    This evaluation presents a plan that addresses the client’s pre injury and post injury functional status and delineates associated costs for current and future medical, therapeutic and functional needs.

Report Critique

  • To ensure the accuracy and quality of rehabilitative and functional information. Based on the best available evidence, we provide medical-legal critique of reports.

Preparation for cross examination

  • Guided preparation for cross examination allows you to develop a deeper understanding of the weaknesses and/or strengths of rehabilitative or functional information to maximize the effectiveness of your cross examination.

Functional Capacity Evaluation

This comprehensive evaluation is designed to assess the individual’s objective ability to perform work and/or activities of daily living. Based on a best practice model of utilizing valid and reliable assessment practices, several questions are commonly answered:

  • Is the client able to return to pre-injury work and lifestyle demands?
    Did the client provide maximal effort?
    Are the client’s reports of function and disability accurate and reliable?
    Is the client able to return to the demands of an alternate vocation?
