Workers’ Compensation Vocational Evaluations: Why They're Used and How They Work

If you need a vocational evaluation in your Workers’ Compensation case, know this: it's critically important to the outcome of your case. In this brief video, South Carolina workers' comp attorney Rob Usry lets you in on why it's important, and gives you an idea what it'll be like.

Hey folks we're talking about workers' compensation vocational evaluations. We use these in serious injury cases to help you qualify for enhanced financial benefits. These evaluations assess your ability to return to work, and if you can return to work, how much money you can expect to earn. Especially whether you can expect to earn as much as you did before you got hurt. They’re done by experts called vocational consultants here's basically how they work.

Before the evaluation the consultant reviews your medical records to get an idea of your injury and your condition. At the evaluation, which lasts a few hours, the evaluator asks you a series of questions. To figure out the jobs you qualify for he'll need to know your work history, education, and training. He'll also need to know what work skills you've developed over the years especially computer skills. He will get a description from you of your injury and, most importantly, your condition and your limitations. Expect to be tested on basic math language and other learning skills. All of this results in a thorough report analyzing all these factors to assess whether you can return to work and, if so, how much money you can expect to make.

An experienced workers' comp attorney will help you use this report to form the best settlement strategy for your case. if you've got serious injuries this may be a possibility for you and you're gonna need a skilled workers' comp attorney on your side to protect your rights to the most benefits you can qualify for.
