Settle with the best
We are proud to offer the most complete personal injury medicolegal expert witness report service in Australia. Our expert registered Occupational Therapists assess, report, peer-review and witness all of our personal injury cases, including cases that need full life care plans as a result of catastrophic injuries. Forensic accounting – determining quantum based on the OT’s recommendations – is included as standard.
Activities of Daily Living Reports
Use our Activities of Daily Living Assessments (ADL) to outline a person’s needs for personal care (past and future), domestic assistance, specialised equipment, home modifications, and therapy and other services.
These reports provide a quantitative opinion on the costs associated with an individual’s case through a home visit by our registered Occupational Therapists. This visit will identify and assess environmental and injury-related barriers to independent living for all levels of care needs and living arrangements.
Equipment costs and necessary home modifications are outlined for current or future residences with care needs also costed via a forensic accounting section within your ADL report.
Whatever your field and focus, we have the expert experience:
- spinal cord
- brain injury
- abuse law
- psychological injury
- motor vehicle accidents
- public liability
- medical negligence
- work-related injury / workers compensation
- end-of-life care
- amputee care needs

- dust diseases
- loss of dependency / compensation to relatives
Forensic Accounting – included as standard
All Evidex OT Reports and Vocational Assessments include forensic accounting as standard.
Our forensic accountants quantify your claim based on our OTs’ recommendations.
Tested in both plaintiff- and defence-side matters, our proprietary forensic accounting model is more accurate than the standard approach seen elsewhere.
For OT Reports, our forensic accounting calculates the quantum of care needs, services, equipment, home mods, and all other OT recommendations.
For Vocational Assessments, based on the occupations identified by the OT, our forensic accounting gives a present-day value of lost earnings, taking into account super, tax, future discounting, and all other relevant factors.
Video Notes – included as appropriate
Where appropriate, our OTs will capture video footage of the claimant attempting engagement in routine daily activities sin their home environment. This can be a powerful confirmation of the degree of disability.
Video Notes are of approx. 5 – 10 minutes duration and are included as standard with our OT Reports where appropriate (or on request).
‘Day in the Life’ Video Evidence
Enhance your client’s case with our ‘day in the life’ DVDs. These visual representations feature a typical day for a person suffering from a catastrophic injury and are used in conjunction with an Activities of Daily Living Report or Life Care Plan.
