Expert Witness
Vocational rehabilitation specialists provide expert testimony in personal injury, Workers Compensation, long term disability, Social Security and divorce cases. Knowing a person’s job potential is a key element for deciders in social security, disability and divorce cases. What kind of work can a person do subsequent to injury, mental breakdown, or divorce is critical to determinations by judges and juries.

Loss of Income - Disability
Loss of income is often the most serious issue in personal injury or disability. An injured individual may no longer be able to perform at previous work levels. Vocational Consultants assess an individual’s post injury work potential and compare that with past work and income. Changes in income potential need to be evaluated so that loss may be assessed. Rehabilitation Services is uniquely placed to offer both vocational evaluations and forensic economic loss projections.

Income Potential - Divorce

Rehabilitation Services Vocational Consultants provide information and expert testimony in situations regarding child support, long-term disability and even long term child support. Processes and procedures are similar to those used in disability cases, only the use of the information is different.
