Are you an Attorney in need of Expert Reports for your injury case?

At IRC, Dr. Brad Poppie, DPT, CLCP, CFCE, CSCS and his experienced team, provide objective, reliable, and professional expert reports including Functional Capacity Evaluations, Life Care Plans, Medical Cost Projections and Earnings Capacity Loss Reports to assist both Plaintiff and Defense Attorneys in presenting and clarifying their case in court and/or help settle the case in pre-litigation.

IRC Services for Plaintiff and Defense Attorneys

IRC services include building a detailed, client-oriented portfolio to give attorneys viable information needed throughout all phases of litigation including the discovery process through trial testimony.

Life Care Planning

A Life Care Plan is a dynamic document based upon published standards of practice, comprehensive assessment, data analysis, and research. This report provides an organized, concise plan for current and future healthcare needs with associated costs for individuals who have experienced catastrophic or non-catastrophic injuries.

Medical Cost Projections

These assessments have a more limited scope and are simplistic compared to a comprehensive Life Care Plan. They are appropriate when there is a specific non-catastrophic injury or illness at stake. Medical Cost Projections “MCP” are typically used when a rapid turnaround is needed and there is limited insurance available.

Functional Capacity Evaluations

A Functional Capacity Evaluation (FCE) is a comprehensive assessment of both clinical and functional tests that enable the accurate recording of any person’s ability to work, perform activities of daily living, and measurement of the patient’s overall physical capabilities. FCE’s are used as the industry standard in both plaintiff and defendant situations.

Vocational and Earning Capacity Assessments

Our Certified Rehabilitation Experts at IRC provide vocational rehabilitation assessments of injured clients in order to determine their wage-earning capacity and rehabilitation potential to determine their overall vocational status. We understand the importance of the case report and how to properly document the damages in a meaningful way.

Expert Testimony Services

The success of a personal injury lawsuit depends on the ability of either plaintiff or defense counsel to prove his or her case with respect to both liability and damages. To do so, the judge or jury must be provided with adequate information from which a conclusion can be reached. IRC has worked with attorneys through various stages of case development, discovery & trial testimony.

Medical Bill Review

As an attorney representing your client, you often wonder if the medical bills that they incur due to their injury are usual, customary, and reasonable (UCR). Many times, When a personal injury claim is being processed, the usual, customary, and reasonableness (UCR) of the medical bills your client may incur can sometimes be queried. Our bill reviews are performed by Certified Professional Billers (CPB)

Expert Reporting Makes Your Case Stronger

Expert reports such as functional capacity evaluations, vocational rehabilitation and earning capacity reports, medical cost projections, and life care plans are often needed to help showcase the damages when negotiating with the insurance adjuster so you can get a fair settlement for your client.

We were able to receive policy limits without any negotiations. I am certain your FCE weighed heavily in their determination. Thank you for doing such a thorough job.

Christine Baker | Kumpf Charsley & Hansen, LLC


Dr. Poppie accommodated our need for a quick turn around and his detailed reports on functional capacity and medical cost projections greatly assisted our ability to prove permanent injuries and future damages. With this evidence we were in a much stronger position to advocate on behalf of our client for a policy limits offer and settlement. 

Daniel E. D’Angelo, Esq. | D’Angelo Law Office, P.C.  


We just concluded the settlement of our case, for policy limits, which were fairly substantial. No doubt, your FCE was of great assistance. I will definitely be contacting you again.

–Gary S. Engle, Esq. | Sharp, Sherman & Engle LLC


Dr. Poppie brings expertise, thoroughness, credibility and most of all compassion to the work that he performs. We received a $2M+ verdict for injury claims as a result of a motor vehicle collision.

I believe we received the verdict in large part based on Dr. Poppie’s life care plan. Dr. Poppie not only reviewed the medical records, but also spoke with each of the treating providers in order to fully understand and verify their recommendations.

He thoroughly and clearly explained everything to the jury. Not only are his reports thorough and accurate, but his explanation made it easy for the jury to follow. His honesty and credibility really shone through.

–Alecia D. Farkas, Trial Paralegal | The Frickey Law Firm, P.C.


Getting adjusters to compensate clients for future impairment is very difficult. Dr. Poppie’s evaluations are thorough and detailed, showing the permanent changes our client will have to endure in their life due to the accident.

–Keith Fuicelli | Fuicelli & Lee, PC


Dr. Poppie simplified complex and complicated Functional Capacity Evaluations designed to quantify objectively an injured person’s physical limitations, then translating those into a Life Care Plan again objectively quantifying the person’s likely expenses for medical and related therapy for the lifespan of the injuries and injured person. Dr. Poppie in coherent and cogent terms explained his twin expertise in quantifying the physical capabilities in the FCE while explaining the future medical costs for additional care necessitated by the injuries, all without advocating for either side, only for the validity of his testing.

-Rich Kaudy | The Kaudy Law Firm


So far it’s been really great working with Dr. Poppie – his reports are stellar and our clients also really like him.  IRC’s reports help us predict future expenses for clients in a way we really cannot in any other meaningful way.

–Megan Hottman | Hottman Law Office PC


We engaged Dr. Poppie to perform a Functional Capacity Evaluation on a gentleman who was significantly impaired for life but still working a full-time sedentary job after a trauma that aggravated an unknown but serious pre-existing condition. We needed a report that was exhaustive, nuanced, and meticulously connected with examination results and medical records. In remarkably short time, Dr. Poppie gave us exactly that. It certainly seemed to have the desired effect during negotiations. I hope to use Dr. Poppie again and heartily recommend him to the personal injury community. 

-Chris Alger | The Murphy Law Firm, LLC


Dr. Poppie and his staff were responsive, professional, and easy to deal with. They were able to get my client in within a week and prepare a very thorough report soon thereafter. I will be using IRC again.

These are excellent, Dr. Poppie. Your reports are thorough, with detailed medical histories, and easy-to-follow cost charts and reports. Thank you.

Doug Bailey | Bailey | Stock | Harmon | Cottam | Lopez LLP


It was the driving factor to settle for policy limits. We were given a low-ball offer and got a Functional Capacity Evaluation and a Medical Cost Projection from IRC and after producing that to the insurance company they offered policy limits. The reports were so detailed and dug deep into the future treatment duration and costs that it helped put an actual dollar amount to the demand. Any Life Care Plans or Medical Costs Projections in my experience help move along a case exponentially.
