San Diego Injury Trial Attorney Mark Blane discusses the California "Independent" (aka Defense) Medical Exam and a couple of strategies he utilizes when his injured client is called for one by the defense lawyer assigned to the case. He speaks about guiding the parameters with a response to the IME called by the defense to make sure the IME is done within guidelines of the code (law); he talks about when to use a registered nurse to attend the exam, or when he goes himself to witness the exam and records it.
