Is an Independent Medical Exam Required?

An IME is a doctor who has not previously been involved in a patient's treatment and care and is chosen by the insurance company, attorney or court. It's kind of like a second opinion for the injured party.

The IME examination is conducted like any other medical exam. The doctor will look at various areas of the body and ask questions. The main focus will be on injuries incurred during the accident, but there is no reason to be nervous as long as you tell the doctor the truth.

    There are several reasons why an independent medical exam is requested:
  • Casualty
  • Workers Compensation
  • Liability
  • Long-term disability
  • Fitness for Duty Exams to evaluate the extent of disability
  • Permanent impairment or injuries
  • Functional capacity evaluations
  • Return to work evaluations
  • Impairment ratings
  • Second opinions
  • Vocational assessments
