Vocational Testing
Employment potential is assessed by using a battery of aptitude and achievement tests combined with an extensive evaluation of the client’s current residual functional capacity. Comparison is made of the individual’s employment potential to the most current labor market data and was data. Individualized consideration is given to the client's age, education, past employment, transferable work skills, limitations, and potential employment positions are explored with the client until a suitable match is found.

Wage Loss and Earning Capacity Analysis
The impact of disability upon an individual's future earning capacity and work life expectancy is evaluated by comparing his current employment potential to his previous employment using a labor market survey and wage data. This analysis not only considers the pre- and post-injury wage comparison but also addresses the potential earn income based on their pre-injury potential, pre and post educational plans, and employment longevity.
