Medical-Legal Assessments evaluate the clinical and functional status of an individual. The assessment is based on a comprehensive review of the medical records as well as neuro-musculoskeletal, psychiatric and/or functional assessments. These assessments are typically performed on individuals that have sustained an impairment and require a medical opinion on the seriousness and permanency of injuries. These are completed by the appropriate neuro-musculoskeletal or psychiatric professional.
