Disability Assessment in Legal Cases
Success in a court case often comes down to who has the majority of the facts on their side and who manages to present them in the most effective manner. Each legal team will likely present different interpretations of the key facts in the case. One way that they do this is to enlist the help of experts who have a substantial body of knowledge in a particular field. The opinions and testimony of these experts have the potential to shed new light on the elements of a case and to have a tremendous effect on the findings of the jury. In many cases, it is necessary to determine whether or not an individual qualifies as disabled. Even if they do qualify as disabled, it may be necessary to prove to what extent.
There are a great number of possible scenarios in which injuries can occur and one party or another may be held liable. If serious damage has been incurred by an individual, it will likely be necessary to determine their functional abilities in a legal case. If suit is being filed in attempts to recoup damages or receive compensation for individuals who may have been disabled, it is a foregone conclusion that some manner of disability assessment may take place. This is necessary to determine if a person has had their abilities seriously impaired and if so, to what degree. The findings of the disability assessment may play a major role in how a case proceeds and to what extent a person may be able to recover damages. Put simply, there are a great many instances where such an analysis will be useful and the success of a case will often hinge upon the findings.
