Occupational Therapy Network provides expert opinion in medicolegal matters. Our assessments determine the impact of an injury on a person’s life, including activities at home, work and leisure referenced to their pre-injury roles and participation. Functional ability is assessed through observation, interview and other available evidence including medical opinion.
Our assessments ensure that the impact of injury is ascertained in relation to each individual and this is reflected in the recommendations which may include treatment/therapy, equipment, environmental modifications, transport and care.
We provide opinion for plaintiffs and defendants in motor accident, professional negligence, public liability and work-related injury or illness matters. Our occupational therapists have experience in joint conferencing and giving evidence in court. Our occupational therapists have been appointed as single experts in selected matters.

- Expertise in a range of disabilities, injuries and conditions
- Expert witness experience

Our occupational therapists are located in the greater Sydney and Newcastle regions, are available to travel and regularly conduct assessments in regional NSW and interstate.
