The Independent Medical Examination

In the course of your personal injury lawsuit, you will probably be required to undergo an “Independent Medical Examination.” This is a medical evaluation by the defendant’s hired doctor, and it is a normal part of any personal injury claim.

Anything But Independent

Because you are asking to be compensated for a medical condition, the insurance company and individual defendants have the right to have their own doctor evaluate your injury and recovery.
Even though these examinations are called independent, there is nothing neutral about the evaluation. The IME is done by a doctor your opponent hand selected and paid. Often insurance companies use the same doctors on a very regular basis because they have gotten the results they were looking for. A better term for these evaluations would be insurance medical examinations.
