Medical Records Review
Medical records are essential in a vocational evaluation. It may be worthwhile to request an independent medical examination (IME) and/or functional capacity evaluation (FCE).
Employment, education, medical, and military records may elicit transferable skills not identified, or perhaps downplayed, by the opposing VE. This information will enable counsel to challenge the foundation and reliability of the vocational assessment.
Pertinent facts regarding vocational disability include: age at the time of the accident; occupation at the time of the accident — including job title, duties, responsibilities and salary; occupations prior to the accident; educational history since the accident; medical conditions prior to the accident; medical conditions at the time of the vocational evaluation; and current medical conditions.
