What is an independent medical examination?

An independent medical examination (IME) is an examination requested by the insurer to be performed by an adverse physician. The goal of this doctor is not to provide you with treatment. The IME is hired by the insurance company to determine the causation, extent of injury, restrictions, date you reached maximum medical improvement (MMI) and the extent of your permanent disability. This usually results in extreme ramifications for your benefits. You should contact attorney Thomas Atkinson at Atkinson Gerber Law Office, and he will assist you in preparing for your examination.
