    IME is a mis-nomer for a medical exam by a doctor selected by the insurance and paid for by the insurance company. They work for the insurance company. Many (nearly all) the doctors that do this work have very few actual patients, if any at all. Many of them rely entirely on this work from the insurance company. Many of them (not all, but many) are very ethically compromised. When they lie about my clients, I crucify them in court. A professional trial attorney should have the skills and...

    Your question is not terribly clear. But, the insurance company can conduct surveillance if they choose. If you have sued them for denying your claim, then surveillance is quite common. If you are accepting the denial, and not pursuing any further benefits from the insurance company, then they probably won't spend the money to follow you around. There would be no point to it.

  4. Can a car injury lawyer prove a closed head injury just by looking at the cracked windshield of a car

    As a lawyer specializing in helping people with closed head injuries for over twenty years, a cracked windshield proves little. If it was cracked by someone's head, then that person might have suffered a concussion, or brain injury. This injury can heal quickly or slowly or not at all. Each person's experience is different. Statistics say that about 85% of mild traumatic brain injuries resolve on their own in about 3 months or less. So, that person may have had an injury that resolved...

    I would urge you to hire an attorney. You have a lot at stake if you wish to pursue a medical license in the future, or any professional license for that matter. An attorney can help you exercise your rights, and navigate a system that, unfortunately, an amateur simply does not know. I would be optimistic for your situation if you get professional assistance.

    The 3rd party case is a case against the at-fault driver and the owner of that vehicle for damages from the accident. The 1st party case is against the responsible no-fault insurer (usually your own insurance company) for coverage of your medical bills, lost wages and some reimbursement for help with household chores that you cannot do because of your injury. I would caution you against negotiating your own third party case without the help of an attorney. The insurance company is very...

    It sounds like the contingent fee was actually on-third, which is %33.333. But, the attorneys out of pocket expenses are deducted first, the the fee is subtracted. For example, the breakdown of a $100,000 settlement would look like this: Settlement amount $100,000.00 Expenses $ 10,000.00 Sub Total 90,000.00 One Third Fee 30,000.00 Net to client 60,000.00 There may be medical bills to pay from that total, as...
