DISABILITY DETERMINATION

Worker's Compensation Disability

Unfortunately, some individuals can become disabled from injuries at work (i.e. concussion, traumatic brain injury) and are no longer able to work and support themselves or their families. The process of obtaining disability requires medical documentation of disability. For traumatic brain injury and concussion (Post-Concussion Syndrome), Neuropsychological Evaluations provides the most reliable and valid way of measuring cognitive impairment.

Disability Policies

 

Some individuals become disabled and are no longer able to perform their job due to medical
conditions such as a stroke, multiple sclerosis, Parkinson’s disease, etc. Obtaining disability benefits, whether
they be short-term or long-term, requires medical documentation of their disability. Specific disability
policies indicate whether the individual needs to provide proof (medical documentation) that they are
either disabled from only their specific occupation or disabled from any type of work (gainful employment). Neuropsychological Evaluations are utilized to make this determination.

Disability Examinations

 

Dr. Kutner has been performing Disability Examinations for more than 25 years. He is a Board Certified Neuropsychologist and on the clinical faculty of Weill Cornell Medicine-Cornell University. After Neuropsychological Evaluations are
completed, a detailed comprehensive narrative report is prepared which becomes a critical part of the
eventual determination for Disability.
