What is a Functional Capacity Evaluation?

A Functional Capacity Evaluation is a “test” performed by your doctor ( or sometimes by the defense medical expert) in the doctor’s office utilized to determine your ability to perform basic functions of your occupation. The doctor completes a form during the test and it may be used as a basis of the expert’s report and expert opinion. So, for instance, the doctor will ask you to bend or stoop, and the doctor completes the form and indicates the degree to which you can do that. The form covers a wide range of physical movements. It can be a very important document in your case, particularly as pertains to your disability.
