The medico-legal process:

The assessment may include, but not limited to a structured interview, observations, standardised- and/or norm-referenced tests, work samples, structured tasks and/or self-reporting questionnaires.
Where indicated, a worksite visit, home visit or school visit is conducted.
A report is compiled, detailing:
Background information to the case (medical history, injuries sustained and sequelae thereof).
Safe work capacity and the impact of the injuries on client’s vocational potential.
Loss of life amenities.
Recommendations regarding vocational rehabilitation; therapeutic intervention; assistive devices; domestic-, gardening- and/or handyman assistance; personal care; transport and home adaptations.
