Medical legal assessment is used to resolve disputes about an employee’s medical health condition. This assessment provides an unbiased medical response in cases of occupational injury, occupational disease, or short- and long-term disability. Likewise, it provides the opportunity to ask specific questions to a physician or specialist regarding any case such as absenteeism, disability. An independent medical assessment or medicolegal assessment is an objective assessment of a client’s diagnosis, mental and/or physical impairments, and recovery prognosis.
Medicolegal assessments are an integral part of personal injury claims. A medical report is used as medical evidence to decide the effect of the injury on the injured person. The content in the forensic report has a direct impact on the value of the personal injury claim. Medicolegal assessments are designed to answer legal questions posed by the court, the plaintiff, or the defendant. At the heart of medicolegal assessment is the application of sound scientific techniques to gather and evaluate medical evidence. Medical legal assessment is provided to confirm an individual’s status by adding medical evidence. It is a third-party medical assessment where the doctor provides a professional opinion and expertise on clients’ ongoing injuries.
Medical legal assessments are health assessments performed by an independent, certified physician to comply with a range of legal obligations. One of the most common reasons people need medical legal assessments is because they’re involved in a lawsuit.
Other claims that often need a medical legal assessment are car accident and other personal injury cases. Again, it’s all about having an independent assessment of the extent of your injuries and how it affects you, as well as the extent to which another person or organization is to blame.
Medicolegal assessment is a court-ordered assessment for use as evidence in criminal cases. A medical legal assessment is a one-time assessment by a doctor for the purpose of claiming compensation from your employees. We provide the court with objective, impartial opinions based on all material facts. As the medicolegal assessment aims to prepare the health report, the doctor who completes the report will not normally administer any treatment.

The clinical reports prepared by our experts are of the highest standard and can be counted on to be completed in a timely and professional manner. Our doctors have experience in providing expert opinion, and some have experience as court experts.

We focus on producing high quality, precise and objective forensic reports.
