Permanency and Disability Examinations
Determining the extent of impairment; evaluating prognosis; gauging the status of a patient and his or her ability to work, live, and thrive after an injury can all seem subjective — which is why an examination by an objective, licensed, and board certified medical examiner is imperative.
When an injury has occurred, the issue of liability often follows. The cause of the damage, and the extent of the injury; the time it will take to heal and whether or what losses to the patient might accrue in the meantime — all need to be determined and defined by an objective, licensed professional.
