What is a vocational evaluation?

Video Transcription:

In the event the injuries prevent the employee from returning to his or her employment at the time of the injury, the insurance company will retain a vocational specialist. This specialist will interview the injured employee and flush out his or her education, prior work, skillset, and then combined with the employee’s permanent work restrictions, the specialist will attempt to find jobs in the vicinity of the employee’s residence that the employee could perform.
