Are you selecting 100% permanent disability?

Every applicant attorney understands the importance of selecting the PTP, QME or AME for optimal patient care and a fair impairment rating. However, only a preferred group of attorneys select Functional Capacity Evaluation (FCE) experts to identify applicant abilities and limitations. The Functional Capacity Evaluation (FCE) by Medical Legal Experts Inc. provides the “facts” needed by vocational rehabilitation (VR) experts to determine if the applicant has sustained a total loss of earning capacity. An applicant’s total loss of earning capacity satisfies the presumption of 100% permanent disability as defined by the 2005 rating schedule. (Boatright, ADJ 3829595)
