Atlanta Workers’ Compensation Attorney – What is an FCE? What will I be asked to do?

A Functional Capacity Evaluation, or FCE, is designed to determine whether or not you are ready to go back to work after a work injury, and if so, document any physical limitations you may have. An FCE is performed by a physical therapist or a doctor who will test your physical capacity to lift weight, stand and sit comfortably, walk distances without experiencing pain, and test range of motion. FCEs are also used to educate the injured worker on the proper way to perform job duties safely as well as to educate the employer on the worker’s physical limitations. The results of the FCE will be compared against how well you functioned in the past and how others in your age range and line of work perform those tasks.

  • Awesome Lawyer and very helpful!

  • Mr. Wilson is truly a very good person who cares about people. I understand he selected this career but I do know he makes many sacrifices to help he’s clients. I am very grateful to have had him as my attorney and if I ever have to use one again (hopefully not) it will be Mr. Wilson.

  • He worked with me. He told me everything. He called me. He gave me all the information.

  • He will be my family lawyer from now until the end because I can trust him.

  • He's just a great guy.

  • He always calls you right back and even if it's on the weekend - he's going to call you back.
