In the course of a workers’ compensation claim, the treating physician will often order that the injured worker undergo a Functional Capacity Evaluation or FCE to determine if permanent work restrictions are required. Our Greensboro Workers’ Compensation Lawyers understand the FCE process and have successfully opposed invalid FCEs.
Unfortunately, it is not unusual for a Greensboro Injury Worker’s FCE to be deemed invalid. The National Academies of Sciences, Engineering and Medicine recently completed a study on FCEs for the Social Security Administration which further confirmed the unreliability of these tests. If you have a workers’ compensation claim and an invalid FCE is causing you trouble with your claim, give our Greensboro Workers’ Compensation Attorneys a call today.
