Our analysis of employment and earning capacity provides attorneys with reliable, individualized hard data for negotiating appropriate awards in personal injury cases and determining spousal earning capacity in divorce cases. We effectively apply similar methodology to a wide range of other litigation, including Workers’ Compensation, discrimination and medical malpractice lawsuits, as well as in non-litigation settings.
Kincaid Vocational & Rehabilitation Services collects the necessary data by:
- conducting in-depth personal interviews
- compiling and evaluating medical and employment histories
- conducting skills and aptitude testing as appropriate for evaluation of an individuals’ functional capacity — including the full range of physical, intellectual, cognitive and psychosocial capabilities.
In addition, we investigate regional labor markets to assess available opportunities. To ensure access to the most up-to-date labor market data, we subscribe to premium database services provided by the Economic Research Institute.
Modeling and Data Analysis
We use advanced earnings capacity modeling and other leading computer-based tools to analyze relevant data. To match potential job requirements with individuals’ capabilities, we rely on the most comprehensive, powerful software available. For example, we utilize transferable skills software, including the McCroskey Transferable Skills Program (MTSP), which is widely recognized for its high degree of reliability and validity.
