Disability Claim Assessment

Neuropsychological assessment of a disability claim may relate to assertions of inability to work at one’s own customary occupation, or alternatively, in any employment capacity at all. Disability claimants range from those with underappreciated cognitive dysfunction to others faking brain damage or mental illness. Expert neuropsychologists and psychologists may therefore be vital to give voice to those whose disability claim is legitimate, and conversely, silence those disability claims that are not. The Forensic Panel’s neuropsychology and psychology experts individualize assessments based upon careful consideration of available history and data of how a person’s functioning may be impaired. Testing for disability is tricky, however. Even when results of testing for functional impairment are clear, a given examinee’s adaptation to those shortcomings must be taken into account in arriving at conclusions. The Forensic Panel’s neuropsychologists and psychologists are among the most thoughtful and ethical examiners of disability claims in America, and teach through their reports and testimony in a way that judges, juries, and insurance adjusters can appreciate on human terms.

Peer Reviewed Disability Claim Assessment

Moreover, to increase the validity and reliability of disability claim findings, The Forensic Panel’s peer-review system ensures that sufficient objectively verifiable information is being reviewed in all disability claims, and that the context of test interpretation fully respects history. This attention to oversight ensures a final disability assessment report of substantive depth, the highest scientific integrity and one which promotes exemplary standards of neuropsychological and psychological testing.
