FCE findings indicate if a person is able to return to his past work based upon a Physical Demands Job Analysis and if so, in what capacity or with what limitations and/or what accommodations; to alternate work based upon transferable skills; to alternate work that requires job retraining; or if the person is no longer capable of competitive employment.

  • Personal injury
  • Medical malpractice
  • Automobile
  • Social Security

  • Employment cases
