If your insurance company has requested that you attend an "IME" (short for "Independent Medical Exam"), you should speak to an attorney about what attending an IME may mean for you and your injury claim. An IME is a physical examination by a doctor who has been hired by your insurance company to write a report about the relatedness of your injuries to the accident, the necessity of the treatment you have received, your need for future treatment, and whether he or she agrees with your own doctor’s diagnoses and treatment plan. Your insurance company will use this report to justify their decision to cut off your benefits or continue to pay for your medical treatment.
There are many factors to consider when you’re deciding if you will attend or decline the IME appointment (and there are circumstances where it might not matter one way or the other). An attorney can help you to determine the best course of action and will provide you with tools to prepare for your IME, if you decide to attend it. Not currently represented?
