1 Sample Personal Injury report with Job Analysis and Loss of Earning Capacity Assessment Mr. Robert L. Attorney Attorney at Law P.O. Box 123 Anywhere, OK RE: John Doe III Dear Mr. Attorney: At your request a comprehensive vocational rehabilitation evaluation was administered to the above mentioned at the PRC Vocational Testing Center in Bethany, Oklahoma on this date. The purpose of the evaluation was to determine his ability to engage in gainful work activity in the competitive labor market, as well as the need for and practicability of vocational rehabilitation services. As a part of this vocational evaluation, medical records were reviewed as provided by your office. Dr. James White provided a Physical Capacities Questionnaire that was reviewed. Some tax information was reviewed. This counselor reviewed the client s deposition of May 8, The clinical interview consisted of taking a personal history, medical history, educational history and work history. A job analysis has been completed regarding his former work. A full battery of vocational aptitude tests and systems were administered. The client was accompanied to the evaluation by his wife. The client was pleasant and cooperative. There were no delays or interruptions in the testing process. Test results are considered valid. Personal and Social History: John Doe III is a twenty-seven year old male who was born and raised in San Antonio, Texas. He presently resides at 1234 S. Third in San Antonio, Texas, His telephone number is (210) He is living in a two-story, four bedroom, two and a half bath house that he is buying. Living with him is his wife of six years, Amber Doe. She is twenty-five years old and is a homemaker. From November 1995 until March 1996 she worked as a Medical Assistant at a doctor s office in San Antonio. She would eventually like to secure her Bachelor s of Science Degree in Nursing. Living with them are their two children, Ashley Doe, who is their five year old daughter, and John Doe IV, who is a two year old son.

2 The client s father is a manager at Diamond Shamrock convenience store. He has a high school education. His mother is an insurance agent with some college. The client has one eleven year old brother, Christopher, who is a student. He has a twenty-one year old sister, Elizabeth Doe. He described his relationship with family members as improving since the accident. Hobbies and recreational activities were noted to be family activities. Prior to injury he enjoyed working out and playing soccer. He is able to drive, but not for more than one hour at a time. He drives a 1995 Chevrolet Camaro. His wife drives a 1995 Jeep Grand Cherokee. Both vehicles have automatic transmissions. The client utilizes both feet when driving. Response quickness with his right foot is reduced. No hand or foot controls have been provided, and they are not requested at this time. The source of income in the family is $2, per month received based on a one hundred percent VA Disability and $ per month received in Social Security Disability benefits. He has been determined totally and completely disabled by the Veterans Administration and unable to perform gainful work activity by the Social Security Administration. Educational History: This client was graduated from Smithson Valley High School in Smithson Valley, Texas in He stated he enjoyed math. He did not particularly like English. He indicated he had a 3.4 grade point average. After high school he enrolled at the University of Texas at San Antonio for the fall 1987 semester. He enrolled in a three hour English class but dropped out after attending about three times. He did not like English. He never returned to school. He has never completed any other formal, vocational, technical or training programs in the civilian world. In the military he received training in Law Enforcement, Air Base Ground Defense, Traffic Management and Accident Investigation, Air Force Quality Awareness, and an Intoximeter course. 2

3 Work History, Military and Civilian: (as reported by client) 1. Military This client was in the United States Air Force from December 14, 1990 until June 21, He received a Medical Discharge. His highest rank achieved was E-4. He was trained in Law Enforcement. He worked as a Patrol Police Officer. He wrote traffic citations, dealt with family disturbances; he went to fire alarms and he worked on the main gate entry control. He enjoyed his military experience. It was his intention of making the Air Force his career. E-4 base pay is between $1, and $1, per month, and his gross pay including all entitlements and benefits was approximately $1, per month. 2. Civilian The only civilian employment this client had held was from May 1987 to December 1980 when he worked for two different McDonald s in the San Antonio area. He began working when he was sixteen years old. He eventually became a Crew Chief earning $5.10 per hour. He did the opening, closing, cooking, cashiering, drive-thru and maintenance. He left McDonald s to join the Air Force. Medical History: (as reviewed from medical records provided and the client's comments) This client had gotten off of work from the Altus Air Force Base and was on his way home. He was approximately one half mile off the base late the night of June 21, 1995 when a drunk driver had a head-on collision with him. Mr. Doe was taken to the Jacksonville Hospital Emergency Room in Altus. He was then taken by Airvac to the Southwest Medical Center in Lawton, Oklahoma. The diagnoses were bilateral temporal lobe hematoma; comminuted patellar fracture of the right knee; right bimalleolar ankle fracture; fracture dislocation of the right medial femoral condyle. Also noted was a fracture of the body of the C7 level. He had a left groin hematoma (that was later resolved). He received cuts, scratches, abrasions and several broken teeth. The injury resulted in a closed head injury and resulting right side paresis. On June 22, 1995 he was operated on by Dr. Peach in the nature of debridement, and the right knee fracture dislocation was reduced with open reduction and internal fixation with screws of the right medial femoral condyle and the right patellar. On June 24, 1994 dressings and closure of traumatic arthrotomy of the right knee was performed by Dr. Peach, an orthopedic surgeon. On June 27, 1994 the right 3

4 ankle fracture was manually reduced by open reduction and internal fixation by Dr. Peach. On June 30, 1994 Dr. Black performed a split thickness skin graft to cover the right knee soft tissue defect. On July 7, 1994 the right medial femoral condyle fixation was noted to have been displaced, but no treatment was instigated because the skin graft had not had time to heal. While at the Southwest Medical Center he was followed by Dr. Peach, Dr. Yellow, a neurosurgeon, and Dr. Orange was a plastic surgery consultant. The client was also seen by a maxillofacial surgical consultant and vascular surgery consultant. He was discharged from the Southwest Medical Center on July 11, He was E-vac d to the United States Air Force Hospital, Wilford Hall, at Lackland AFB for acute medical care and follow-up. While there he was followed by Dr. White, an orthopedist, and Dr. Purple, an orthopedic resident. He was provided continuing medical care for thirty days. A neuropsychological consultation was completed. On August 11, 1994 he was transferred to the Audie Murphy Veteran Memorial Hospital in San Antonio for rehabilitation care and follow-up. He was followed by Dr. Violet and several other rotating attending physicians, including Dr. Magenta. The purpose of the referral was to increase his strength on the right side of his body and to improve his bed mobility and transfers as well as improvement in functioning in activities of daily living and gait training. He received physical therapy and occupational therapy, and ADL equipment was ordered. He was discharged on August 25, 1994 with the ability to ambulate with a four-point walker cane. Outpatient therapy was provided initially on a daily basis, then three times weekly, and later two times a week until he plateaued and continued with his own physical therapy and rehabilitation at home. Self-help equipment that was supplied to the patient while at the Audie Murphy Veteran Memorial Hospital included a folding light wheelchair with removable armrests and legrests and bilateral elevation legrests, a three-inch foam double wheelchair cushion, a safety gait transfer belt, a raised toilet seat and toilet Versaframe, a tube transfer bench and hand-held shower with a valve and posterior resting gutter splint for right lower extremity with Velcro closures were also provided. Upon discharge he was independent with regard to transfers and most personal activities of daily living. 4

5 While at home he was provided a quad-cane and grab-bars for the tub and shower. Hand rails have been installed on the stairway to the bedrooms on the second floor. A right AFO device has been provided. In October 1994 the screw was removed from his kneecap. On July 26, July 29 and August 1, 1994 a neuropsychological evaluation was performed by Reed Bradford, clinical psychologist, and Randy Robinette, clinical neuropsychologist, while the client was at the Wilford Hall Medical Center. The referral was made at the request of Dr. Mint as required by the Medical Examination Board. This neuropsychological evaluation found that he had an average range full-scale IQ of 95 which was expressed to be consistent with expectations of estimated premorbid ability. His verbal reasoning abilities fell within the average range with a verbal IQ of 95, which was also felt to be consistent with expected premorbid intelligence levels. His performance and non-verbal reasoning abilities fell within the average range with a performance IQ of 90. The report suggested no indication of any general decline in his problem-solving and reasoning abilities. General attention span appeared intact. His ability to sequence a numeric series was mildly impaired. His performance on the test of distractibility was within normal limits. His performance was noted to be poor on more complex tasks requiring both sustained attention and rapid information processing, which was noted to be possibly a function of his medication side effects. Conversational speech was noted to be dysprosodic (disturbance of pitch and rhythm of speech) and mildly dysarthric (imperfect articulation). Though generally fluent, his comprehension, syntax, semantics and word finding appeared intact. There was no clear evidence of a specific aphasic deficit. Visuospatial perception appeared intact, as did his ability to make fine visual discriminations; however nonverbal problem solving was mildly impaired, suggesting difficulties with visual problem-solving. He performed poorly on speeded visuospatial matching tasks, suggestive of slow visual information processing. It was noted the deficit was more likely related to an inadequate matching strategy than a perceptual deficit. Evaluation of memory functioning revealed some mild to moderate impairment, particularly when requiring organizational strategy or encoding and memory retrieval. Abstract verbal reasoning was average to low average. Non-verbal abstract problem solving and hypothesis testing were within normal limits. The neuropsychologist felt that his cognitive deficits were secondary to the head injury, but the areas affected would likely decline or resolve substantially with time; consequently a re-evaluation was recommended. Overall memory deficits were noted to be mild to moderate in light of his low average verbal abilities. The diagnosis was noted as organic mental disorder, mild to moderate, secondary to a closed head injury (left cerebrum). Right hemiparesis prevented the use of the preferred right hand. Personal adjustment and marital counseling were recommended and provided over a period of three to four months by psychology intern Kathleen Spear and Paul 5

6 Ingmundson, Ph.D., staff psychologist. Their clinical diagnosis was adjustment disorder with mixed emotional features. Dr. Red completed a Physical Capacities Questionnaire on June 4, Dr. Red indicated that prior to injury the patient had no limitations of any kind with regard to physical demands or environmental and/or non-exertional conditions and situations. Post-injury he is restricted from lifting between ten pounds occasionally and twenty pounds on a maximum basis. There is no limitation with regard to his left upper extremity in terms of reaching, handling, fingering and feeling. However with his right, the limits are due to the loss of coordination and fine motor skills. He is limited to perform only occasional reaching and handling with his right. He does not have the capacity to perform work activities involving fingering, feeling, stooping, bending, kneeling, crouching or crawling. Climbing is limited to an occasional basis, and balancing is negated. There are no limits with regard to talking, hearing and other sensory conditions of vision, taste, smell or hearing. However he does tend to mumble with regard to his talking. In terms of environmental conditions there were no limitations prior to injury. Post-injury there are limitations with outdoor and indoor work with regard to exposure to cold temperatures, which causes his bones to ache. Sitting is restricted to two hours. Standing is restricted to one half hour, and walking is restricted to ten minutes. In terms of the client s complaints he stated he cannot lift and carry over ten to twenty pounds. He has difficulty climbing such things as ladders, steps, stairways, scaffolding, ramps and the like. He has difficulty with balance including walking on slippery, icy, uneven, sandy, or wet surfaces. He has limitations with bending, stooping, crouching and crawling. He is unable to utilize his right upper extremity for handling including gross motor manipulations involving grasping, seizing, holding, twisting and turning. He also has limitations with fingering on his right hand with limitations to touch, feel, pick, pinch and fine finger dexterity. His speech appears to be somewhat disarticulate and sometimes it sounds as if he is mumbling. Prior to injury the client stated he had 20/20 vision. Now he wears glasses. Cold climates gives him discomfort in his joints, particularly in his arms and legs. It is difficult for him to tolerate loud noises, which bring on headaches and makes him nervous. He cannot move quickly out of harm s way. He cannot stand and walk for over fifteen to twenty minutes. When he is sitting for over thirty minutes at a time he stated his right foot begins to swell and ache. He has difficulty sleeping. He stated he has loss of strength and tires and fatigues easily. It is difficult for his skin to heal. He indicated that he bruises easily. He stated he has ringing in both ears. He indicated that his neck is sore and tender. He has frequent heartburn. He has muscle weakness, twitching, muscle spasms, tremors and shakiness. He has problems with dropping things with his right hand. He 6

7 stated his right hand cramps and sweats. He has some numbness in his arms and legs. He stated that when he has to go to the bathroom he must go without delay. This includes both bowel and bladder needs. He and his wife have diminished sexual activities. He indicated he has lost weight (over thirty pounds) since he left the hospital. He stated he has daily headaches. They are on both sides of his head, but they basically begin in the front area. Tylenol and quiet time helps them go away. Noise, stress, smells such as fumes and gas also bring on the headaches. He stated he has difficulty remembering what he has read. He has difficulty with sense of direction. He stated that sometimes he begins to say something and forgets what he is saying. He feels depressed, worried and anxious. He stated that he is irritable and has a lack of patience. He is self-conscious how other people see him. He is moody, angry, impulsive and has a poor stress tolerance. He seems to find himself easily able to be drawn into arguments, when in the past he was not that way. He walks with a quad-cane. He occasionally uses a crutch when his hand and wrist hurt. He has a right AFO, but he only has one shoe that it fits. He is able to perform most of his own personal activities including dressing, feeding and bathing himself. Personal home activities are limited to things that do not require a lot of strength or bilateral abilities. He feels as if he would benefit from additional physical therapy, occupational therapy (fine motor skills), speech therapy, left dominant training and personal adjustment counseling. Job Analysis of Transferable Skills: (Utilizing U.S. Dept. of Labor data) Dictionary of Occupational Titles, Revised fourth edition, 1991 and its supplements; 1992 Classification of Jobs and the Handbook for Analyzing Jobs and the client's description of his duties. Job Title: Police Officer D.O.T. Code: Physical Demand Level: Medium Skill Level: Semi-Skilled 7

8 Physical Demand Definition: Medium Work - Exerting 20 to 50 pounds of force occasionally, and/or 10 to 25 pounds of force frequently, and/or greater than negligible up to 10 pounds of force constantly to move objects. Physical demand requirements are in excess of those for Light Work. Test Results: Specific intelligence testing utilized the Shipley Institute of Living Scale. It is more of a verbal intelligence system measuring vocabulary and abstract reasoning abilities. On this instrument the client scored a WAIS equivalent IQ of 100. This places him in the average range of intelligence. To better learn of the client's level of general educational development academic achievement testing utilized the WRAT-3. It evaluates the retention level of acquired academic skills. This instrument is a measure of performance in the basic school subjects of reading word recognition and pronunciation, written spelling and arithmetic computation. This client reads equivalent to a post high school level with a 100 standard score at the 50 percentile. This client spells equivalent to a 8th grade level with a 91 standard score at the 27 percentile. This client performed arithmetic equivalent to a senior in high school with a 106 standard score at the 66 percentile level. His academic standard scores are consistent with his intelligence level. The Nelson-Denny Reading Test was given. It is a twenty minute timed reading comprehension test. It measures reading for comprehension, judgment and understanding of narrative passages. A series of passages were presented for the client to read and answer questions relevant to what was read. It is a measure of academic achievement levels. The client performed reading at the 15.1 grade level. He read at 195 words per minute, which is equivalent to the 25 percentile based on high school graduate norms. The Flanagan Industrial Test for Memory was provided. This instrument measured the client's ability to learn and to recall a term associated with an unfamiliar one. It is a measure of short-term memory. This client's score for industrial norms score was 10 percentile, which is significantly below average. A lateralized dominance memory test was provided, the Recognition Memory Test. This test is designed to validate and detect memory deficits across a wide range of the adult population. It is a recognition memory test for printed words and photographs of faces. It has been shown that verbal memory deficits are often associated with left hemisphere damage; whereas non-verbal memory deficits are often associated with right hemisphere damage. The word memory section is the 8

9 verbal portion associated with left hemisphere. On the word subtest the client performed at less than the 5 percentile. On the faces subtest the client performed at less than the 5 percentile which is also far below average of the adult population. The Recognition Memory Test low score is consistent with the Flanagan Industrial Test for Memory low score. The SRI Numerical Perception Aptitude Test measured the ability to scan for accuracy regarding symbols and numeric figures as well as the ability to differentiate and handle accurately matching numbers, symbols and signs. It measured the ability to quickly distinguish differences and incongruities between sets of numbers. It also measured the ability to identify critical features as well as focus attention. It is an important skill required of certain clerical, record keeping or bookkeeping tasks. Stanine scores range from zero to ten with zero being low and ten being high. The client's stanine score was 7 which is considered above average range. The General Clerical Aptitude Test was given. The aptitude test measured the client s ability to perform such tasks as filing, alphabetizing, and error recognition with speed and accuracy. The client s score was at the 50 percentile compared to male clerical workers, which is considered average. The Flanagan Industrial Test for Coordination was provided. This instrument measured the individual's ability to coordinate gross motor hand and arm movements smoothly and accurately with their dominant hand. This client was right dominant prior to his injury--now he must utilize his left hand. Based on dominant norms (which now is his left) he scored at the 20 percentile, which is a significantly below average score. The Purdue Pegboard Aptitude Test was given and measured gross movements in the arms, hands and fine finger dexterity, coordination and skills. It measured the dexterity for three types of activities: one involving motor movements of the hands, fingers and arms; one involving primarily what might be called fingertip (touch, feeling sensation) dexterity; and one involving eye hand coordination. This test is related to jobs involving the worker trait factor Handling such as found in assembly, packing, operation of certain machines; and other manual jobs including keyboard work. With the right hand the client performed at less than the 1 percentile level, and with the left hand the client performed at the 40 percentile level. When using both hands the client performed at less than the 1 percentile level, and when performing the assembly subtest the client performed at the 18 percentile level, which is also considered below average. This test would suggest prior to injury his right hand fine finger dexterity was probably at least average. 9

10 Grip strength testing revealed that the client could grip 70 pounds with the right dominant (injured) hand, which is approximately 34 percent below average, and 100 pounds with the left hand, which is approximately 2 to 3 percent below average. Three separate trials were given on each hand. His right hand was tired and cramped at the completion of this task. The Spatial Relations (paper puzzles) Aptitude Test was provided. The task was to determine which of several flat pieces would be left over if all the other pieces were assembled so as to correspond with the given form. It measured the ability to comprehend forms in space and to understand relationships of plane as well as solid objects. This task may be used in drafting, design, blueprint reading and solving geometric problems. The test is frequently described as the ability to "visualize" or to think visually of geometric form. His score was 62 percentile which is considered above average. The Whole Body Range of Motion Work Sample was provided. This instrument and work sample is a nonmedical measure of work capacity, endurance and agility a person has in gross body movements while performing different transfers when standing. The transfers included performing bending and stooping, working at waist, chest and over-the-head levels. The client had limitations and difficulty in performing bending and stooping and overhead tasks. He is not able to perform work activities while standing utilizing both hands for long. The Hand Tool Dexterity Test was provided. This instrument measured the client's proficiency and ability to coordinate hand and arm movements utilizing various and common industrial tools such as wrenches and screwdrivers in a nut and bolt work assembly timed task. This type of skill is important in many different types of factory jobs, industrial apprentice training, and in the servicing of home, office, farm and automobile equipment. It is a measure of bilateral skills, and it can be a measure of worker endurance and stamina. The work was performed while standing in front of a bench with the materials in front of the client. The client was not able to utilize a screwdriver with his right hand. Neither could he utilize that hand for breaking loose the nuts from the bolts on the testing board with other tools. Temperaments are important factors in successful employment. Temperament testing revealed the client has the following occupational preferences: Not Variable (does not prefer variety and frequent change; is not able to change from one task to another of a different nature without loss of efficiency or composure) Not Influencing (does not prefer work where the client changes other persons ideas, beliefs or opinions in order to motivate, convince or negotiate) 10

11 Not Self-controlling (non-adaptability to performing work under stress and risk; does not prefer to work when confronted with emergency, critical, unusual or dangerous situations) Not Valuative (does not prefer work using the five senses in making decisions; does not prefer work where results can be seen; does not interpret attitudes of customers or judge quality; does not evaluate on the basis of senses or experience; does not make decisions based on sensory or judgmental criteria) Objective (prefers orderly standard procedures; making generalizations, judgments or decisions based on measurable or verifiable criteria) Occupational Motivations and Values Assessment indicates the client seeks the following elements for job satisfaction: Independence Job Security Good Salary Do work that lets you be your own boss and do the job the way you want without someone watching over you Have a steady job from which you are unlikely to be fired Be well paid for your work High Achievement Be able to do things of importance or to succeed on a job that is difficult These occupational values were being satisfied through his military experience. The Self-Evaluation of Abilities Assessment reveals the client believes to have strengths in these areas: Computational Clerical Teaching Spatial Being fast and accurate in working with numbers Operating business machines, keeping accurate records, typing Helping others learn, showing people how to do something Seeing differences in size, form, and shape and visualizing relationships Interest testing utilized the Harrington-O'Shea System for Career Decision Making and the California Occupational Preference System. The client reviewed, ranked and rated interests in many different occupations. On the Harrington-O Shea elevated scores were found in clerical, data analysis and social services. On the California Occupational Preference System the only elevated score was found in clerical activities. 11

12 The Clinical Analysis Questionnaire, Beck Depression Scale and the Incomplete Sentences Blank were provided. These instruments measured the client's present preoccupations, current conscious conflicts and subconscious concerns. These instruments are useful as diagnostic/screening tools for evaluation of psychological overlay. His Beck Inventory score of 31 is considered severely depressed. There is also evidence of significant depression on the CAQ. This client shows evidence of anxious depression. He appears to be frightened, gloomy, sad and worn out. There is evidence of him being resentful with feelings of unreasonable persecution. He feels seclusive and useless. There is evidence that prior to injury he viewed himself as being self-sufficient, independent and very resourceful. These characteristics have now been compromised resulting in anxiety, anger, tension and frustration. Significant psychological overlay is indeed present. Discussion: This client has a very serious vocational handicap. He was medically discharged from the military because he could not perform those work activities any longer. He had been determined to be one hundred percent totally disabled by the Veterans Administration. The Department of Health and Human Services Social Security Division has confirmed that he is not capable of engaging in substantial gainful work activity and therefore is unemployable in the competitive labor market. According to Dr. Red, the client s complaints and our own test results, the client is restricted to a sedentary work environment; however he is not able to sit for over two hours at a time because his feet swell and they must be elevated. Most sedentary and light work are professional, technical, managerial, sales, clerical and production bench work. This client does not have the training, education, background or experience to perform those work activities. Also most of those work activities require the bilateral use of hands. Approximately 99 percent of the in excess of 12,000 jobs identified by the U.S. Department of Labor s Dictionary of Occupational Titles require occasional, frequent or constant reaching and/or handling. Eighty-four percent of the jobs require fine finger dexterity. If this client is restricted to a sedentary physical demand only 11 percent of the jobs in the D.O.T. are sedentary. He has occasional restrictions with climbing activities, and 10 percent of the jobs require that physical demand. He is not capable of performing balancing work activities, and 7 percent of the jobs require that physical demand. He is not capable of performing stooping work activities, and 35 percent of the jobs require that physical demand. He is not capable of performing kneeling activities, and 14 percent of the jobs require that physical demand. He is not capable of performing crouching activities, and 22 percent of the jobs require that physical demand. He is not capable of performing crawling activities and 3 percent of the jobs require that physical demand. Approximately 1 percent of the jobs require exposure to extreme cold, which he should avoid. 12

13 This client is going to experience a number of limitations in his personal activities of daily living. Some of those limitations that he will experience problems with are noted: opening jars, lids and cans, cutting meat, shuffling cards, tying shoes, slicing a tomato, peeling a potato, holding a large sandwich, sewing, riding a motorcycle or bicycle, mowing grass with a push mower, hanging a picture, washing dishes, pots and pans, holding a child, folding clothes, ironing clothes, diapering a baby, cutting, cleaning and trimming fingernails, changing a ceiling light bulb with a cover, starting a screw or a nail, tying a trash bag, edging, using a shovel, making an ice cream cone, typing, making a bed, wrapping and unwrapping packages, turning pages in a book, cooking, measuring and pouring liquids, raking, sawing, drilling, filing, sanding, painting, sweeping, driving backing up, raising the hood of a car, pouring gas, oil, coolants and fluids from a can, changing a tire, buttoning buttons on a sleeve, tying a tie, putting on gloves, utilizing scissors, erasing, opening an envelope, utilizing a paper clip, utilize/loading a stapler, playing catch and playing many sports, edging a sidewalk and drinking with his left hand. This client appears to have average intelligence and functional reading and math abilities. His spelling skills are below average. He has good numerical perception and average general clerical aptitudes. He has average spatial relations aptitudes. With his average intelligence and functional reading skills one may assume he would be capable of learning; however, if the memory test results are accurate and valid, he would not be capable of remembering what he has learned. In that case, a college program would result in frustration and failure to progress. If his low memory abilities were present in a work environment, he would probably find himself rather quickly unemployed. If a person is not able to remember what an employer requires of them it would not take long before the worker would be terminated. Additionally this client is having some very significant psychological problems. The vocational limitations imposed by this depression could be poor memory and concentration, being irritable, being easily distractible and difficulties with focusing and sustaining attention. There would be problems with being dependable, responsible, and he probably would exhibit chronic tiredness. His ability to deal with stress and hazardous situations would be precluded. He may have difficulty dealing with people. This condition would probably limit his adaptability to change in terms of routine and duties. Productivity would suffer as would quality work. He would be withdrawn, seclusive and have a lack of interest. His ability to plan, organize, analyze, and set priorities would be diminished. He could probably have difficulties with appetite and sleep disturbance. He may also exhibit poor impulse control and difficulty with mood control. Prior to injury this client had an access of approximately 40 percent of the jobs in the Oklahoma labor market. Combining his physical limitations with his psychological overlay and limited memory skills, his ability to function in the 13

14 competitive world of work is totally and completely diminished at present. The functional limitations imposed as noted herein would preclude his ability to perform successfully in the world of work. This counselor agrees with the neuropsychological evaluation that his premorbid intelligence was average. Based on that fact and his academic skills, prior to injury he would have been capable of advancement in the military and even completing a college degree. It is this counselor s opinion that he is in need of continuing physical therapy, occupational therapy, speech therapy, dominant training and psychological counseling. If he could overcome his psychological adjustment difficulties and improve his memory skills, the academic foundation and intellectual capacity is present for vocational rehabilitation. This counselor would only recommend that he enter into training at a low stress, part-time and not particularly demanding academic level of coursework. This would be true for both college Associate Degree or vocational technical training. This client has a long ways to go before he would have the potential for returning to work, and the prognosis is guarded. It was his intention to become a career Air Force serviceman. At his young age he would have been capable of retiring with twenty years service from the Air Force and engaging another new career in any other field that he desired that matched his interests and abilities. At the time of his injury he was twenty-five years old. According to Work Life Expectancy tables taken from the U.S. Department of Labor, Bureau of Labor Statistics, he would have been expected to have worked at least thirty-six more years; however he could have easily worked up to age sixty-five and beyond, as many workers do. As an E-4 enlisted man his base salary was between $1, and $1, per month. If he were to remain in the military and progressed to an E-9 rank, his base salary at twenty years would have been $2, per month. The earliest he could possibly have made E-9 rank would have been ten years. Mr. Doe served almost five years. Sincerely, Cary L. Bartlow, Ph.D. Licensed Professional Counselor Certified Rehabilitation Counselor Certified Vocational Evaluator 14
