Evaluation Process

My doctor has already provided all the information regarding my medical condition. Why ask for a forensic expertise?

There are several reasons to request a medical expertise.

  • Your attending physician may not have the knowledge necessary to fill out the required forms in the event of an occupational or road accident.

  • The mandator may want to know the percentage of your permanent impairment due to an injury in accordance with the applicable scale of CNESST, SAAQ, IVAC, etc. Only a forensic medical expert has the necessary knowledge to perform these calculations.

  • Maintaining the relationship you have with your physician may not allow for an impartial decision to be made regarding your return-to-work date and other details.

  • The forensic medical expert has access to your entire medical and administrative file, which allows him to make a better decision regarding your health status.

  • The independence and impartiality of the forensic medical expert acts in your favor.

  • The training of the expert carrying out the evaluation allows him to respond to the mandatory in a precise manner.

Forensic expertise is a recognized and specialized field of medicine, specifically designed for this type of situation.

How Do I Prepare for an Assessment Carried Out at My Behest?

You are advised to proceed via your lawyer, trade union or representative to meet with the expert to better explain why you are requesting a forensic assessment: a clear mandate implies specific questions to be answered by the expert. In addition, prior to the consultation with the expert, you will be required to provide a medical and possibly administrative (CNESST) file that is as complete as possible regarding your problem before the date of the expertise. Call us, we are here to help you!

How Do I Prepare for an Assessment Requested by a Party Other Than Me?

We are accustomed to receiving people at the behest of third parties. We assure you that you will be received with kindness and courtesy. Our expert will examine you with complete impartiality. He will expect you to be willing to answer his questions to clarify the history of your condition and the elements surrounding it in order to understand the situation better.

How Do I Go About Appointing an Expert?

You can appoint an expert yourself by contacting him directly by phone or email. However, we strongly recommended you to send your application through a lawyer or a representative to propose a clear mandate and a complete file, both medical and administrative.
