Medical-Legal Assessments

Our team of professionals includes Canadian Certified Rehabilitation Counsellors (CCRC) and Registered Rehabilitation Professionals (RRP), specializing in the Vocational field.

They conduct Medical-Legal Vocational Assessments for legal defense issues with our client companies.

These assessments determine: level of employability and earning capacity; loss of income and future loss of income (following review of the complete medical brief); as well as cost estimates of rehabilitation programs designed to return injured people to suitable employment.

Our Vocational Professionals have experience as expert witnesses, defending the opinions and conclusions provided in their Vocational Assessment Reports, at mediation meetings, arbitration tribunals and in courts of law.

Life Care Plans (Cost of Future Care Assessments)

The International Academy of Life Care Planners (IALCP) defines a life care plan as “a dynamic document based upon published standards of practice, comprehensive assessment, data analysis, and research, which provides an organized, concise plan for current and future needs, with associated costs for individuals who have experienced catastrophic injury or have chronic health needs.”

The Life Care Plan is a comprehensive report which outlines the current and future needs, along with associated costs, for an individual with a serious or catastrophic injury, or individuals with chronic health needs. The report identifies both current and long term needs associated with the onset of the disability, and accurately details the cost of future care. All recommendations are supported by medical and rehabilitation foundations. Typical categories of needs addressed in our recommendations include:

Physician follow up; Medications; Therapeutic interventions; Assistive devices and medical equipment/supplies; Home support services; Architectural renovations; and Transportation.
