What Should I Know About an Independent Medical Examination in a Personal Injury Case?
If you are filing a personal injury lawsuit in California following an auto accident, truck accident, motorcycle crash, slip and fall accident, or other types of personal injury accident, you will likely hear the term IME. Watch this video to find out what it means and what you can expect in an IME.
An IME is an independent medical examination that the insurance company or defense attorney will ask of you. During an IME, a doctor will check out your injuries. Make no mistake about it; this examination is not independent because it is their doctor, and the exam is done for the defense—not for your best interest.
At the Law Offices of John P. Rosenberg, we know what happens in these examinations, and we do everything to protect our clients during defense medical examinations. You will be accompanied to the exam by an attorney or another doctor to make sure the IME is fair and reasonable, that the doctor performing the exam understands his or her limits, and that we will be taking an audio recording of the entire examination. To protect your interests in an IME, contact attorney John P. Rosenberg in Woodland Hills at (818) 530-1770 or online.
