Vocational and Earning Capacity Assessments
Our Certified Rehabilitation Experts at IRC provide Vocational and Earning Capacity Assessments of injured clients in order to determine their wage earning capacity and rehabilitation potential to determine their overall vocational status.
Our extensive employability assessment encompasses an initial vocational interview that documents things like reported physical limitations, vocational interests, transferable skills, work and earnings history, vocational training, past education, values, and motivation to work.
A thorough review of labor market research, medical documentation, and especially Functional Capacity Evaluations, provide the true framework to formulate opinions regarding pre versus post-injury employability and rehabilitation potential.
Lost wages and earning capacity are extremely valuable in determining the total sum of wages an individual could have earned before their injury. We then extrapolate their earning capacity and match their ability to earn wages in the future following their injury or illness.
Often times, attorneys emphasize establishing clear liability while the impact of the injury on the client’s ability to work and earn income is overlooked. Many attorneys do not fully understand the importance of this report and / or how to properly document the damages in a meaningful way to justify the vocational economic damages to the insurance company. The experts at IRC have helped attorneys bridge the gap and minimize the misunderstandings between the medical evidence relating to the disability and the vocational reports that project damages into the future.
