Analyze Financial Data

When time is of the essence, personal injury attorneys like you use medical cost projection (MCP) reports to quickly assess and detail a claimant’s specific non-catastrophic injury or illness. These limited-scope reports can provide a quick turnaround in instances where client coverage may be limited or in mediation preparation to help expedite a streamlined settlement process. 

Build a Stronger case for Your Clients

If you’re a personal injury attorney, you know that validating the extent of a person’s injury is a critical part of many of your cases, including during dispute resolution when a claim is upheld or queried. You also know that a Functional Capacity Evaluation (FCE) is the industry standard to make that validation.
