Catastrophic Assessments (all disciplines)
Catastrophic Assessments are used to determine the severity of a person’s injuries; commonly used for motor vehicle accident victims. Assessments evaluate the victim’s physical, mental, and behavioural state to determine if the person is injured and if these injuries impact their daily living and ability to work.
Our professionals include physiatrists, psychiatrists, psychologists, neurologists, neuropsychologists, and occupational medicine physicians trained in the use of the AMA Guides to the Evaluation of Permanent Impairment and in catastrophic impairment assessments.
How We Conduct Catastrophic Assessments:
- The impairments are identified as physical, mental, or behavioural.
- The appropriate specialist is chosen (in some cases several specialists are chosen).
- The principles and the tables in the AMA Guides are applied.
- The specialist’s opinion is given.
