Our experienced team of occupational therapists provide timely, transparent Medico Legal Assessments to clients across Queensland.
The unbiased, expert opinion of an experienced occupational therapist is invaluable for a court in determining the impact of an illness or injury on a person’s life. You need to be able to rely on the expert, knowing that the information is based in fact, well researched, thoroughly explained, and impartial.
We work closely with our clients on their Medico Legal Assessments, treating each with individualism, compassion and respect at all times. Occupational Therapist Jacinta McCartin, has over 20 years’ experience working with solicitors and insurers. Jacinta has provided Medico Legal reports and opinions in many cases, as well as worked with national and local legal firms.
Coastal Rehab’s medico-legal reports are clear, succinct and ensure compliance with all court rules and requirements. Our reports provide a thorough and accurate, expert opinion on the loss of lifestyle, pain and suffering, employability, and rehabilitation needs and care involved in complex cases. Our reports also include recommendations and costings for appropriate equipment, services, rehabilitation treatment or training solutions.
The expert opinion of an occupational therapist is also invaluable for clients seeking a Disability Support Pension or NDIS application. Families may also be looking for a detailed functional assessment report to support a Guardianship application through the Queensland Civil and Administrative Tribunal (QCAT).

A Medico Legal Assessment documents your current level of function, which is used as part of a personal injury claim in legal and court matters.
These reports contain information pertaining to factual matters of the case, background information on the individual in question and their relationships, the results of their functional assessment, and the opinion of the Coastal Rehab occupational therapist working on the case.
This depends on the outcome of the client consultation and the nature of the case. It is usually best to have any needed assessments done well in advance to ensure they are done correctly.
At Coastal Rehab, our objective is to make a functional difference in everything we do. A high degree of client satisfaction matters to us, together with achievement of rehabilitation goals.
