For a complete and objective evaluation

Medico-Legal Assessment

A medico-legal assessment is used to settle disputes related to the medical health status of an employee. This evaluation provides an unbiased medical answer in cases of occupational injury, occupational disease or short and long term disability. It equally offers the opportunity to ask specific questions to a physician or a specialist regarding any type of case, whether absenteeism, disability, CSST, SAAQ, IVAQ, etc., such as:

  • Verification of the diagnosis
  • Date of consolidation or justification for the absence
  • Assessment of functional limitations
  • Evaluation of personal pre-existing condition and the possibility of cost-sharing
  • Assessment of permanent impairment to physical and mental integrity
  • Relevance of treatment
  • Possibility to perform simple tasks or temporary reassignment
  • Motivation of the employee to return to work
