Occupational therapists are able to provide expert opinion on an individual’s function and ability to participate in their daily activities following a life-altering event or accident. Occupational therapists can work with legal representatives and their clients to complete a comprehensive functional occupational therapy assessment to detail the client’s ability to participate in their daily activities and to present the impact of the client’s injuries on their daily living.
Occupational therapists understand that physical, cognitive and emotional injuries can have a negative impact on an individual’s ability to participate in their daily activities. Occupational therapists are able to provide recommendations and strategies to promote improved participation and engagement in daily life.
Occupational therapists are also able to act as expert witnesses in a court of law to present an opinion on a client’s ability to participate in their occupations and activities of daily life, including activities of self-care, productivity and leisure.
