Independent Medical Examination (IME) for your Personal Injury, Product Liability and Workers’ Compensation cases.
Independent Medical Examination (IME)
Independent Medical Examinations (IMEs) are often required to answer specific medical questions, including the relationship of diagnosis to the specific injury, accident or illness; further treatment recommendations; extent of permanent impairment or disability; and other information as needed. These examinations are often performed by doctors who work for the insurance companies.
Many IME companies provide examinations performed by doctors who work for insurance companies. Because they work for the insurance company, these doctors are not always independent and unbiased – they often write reports that are favorable to the insurance company. These are referred to as Defense Medical Examinations (DMEs).
