Defense / Independent Medical Exams


 

Experienced, trial tested, physicians dedicated to providing unbiased, expert consultation.

Defense Medical Exams (DMEs) and Independent Medical Exams (IMEs) are conducted to determine the cause, extent, and medical treatment of a work-related or other injury where liability is an issue; whether an individual has reached maximum benefit from treatment; and whether any permanent impairment remains after treatment.

A DME or IME may be conducted at the behest of an employer or an insurance carrier to obtain an independent opinion of the clinical status of the individual. Workers’ compensation insurance carriers, auto insurance carriers, and self-insured employers have a legal right to this request. Should the physician performing the IME conclude that a patient’s medical condition is not related to a compensatable event, the insurer may deny the claim and may refuse payment.
