I have to go for Independent Medical Exam for MVA. Ive asked MY doctor to refer me to IME doctor's private practice so that the IME doc doesnt know the inx requested IME. The inx policy states only that I have to see one of the doctors that inx chooses & this doctor was one of the options given to me. The policy does not state that I have to go through the inx contracted service for the IME. 1. I have been told that taking a IME nurse observer is wise when going to IME's is this truly necessary even if the doctor does not know the inx requested the IME? 2. How can I find such a nurse in Seattle area? 3. Do u have any names & #s for me? AM looking for atty but the INX wants IME done ASAP & wont pay bills until IME done. This is my own inx using my PIP coverage, it is my own inx that has been questioning my injuries and the claims adjuster has lied on more than one occassion when representing my claim. Has yet to respond to why she is lying but of course the lies make me look bad & I have proof are not the actual facts at all. I dont trust the inx & dont feel is wise to use their contracted service to book the IME as I was told it is simply going to be a paid opinion in inx favor.
Is the reason you cannot find an attorney because the crash was your fault, because you don't want to pay the attorney fee, or some other reason? Usually, lawyers and other professionals don't work piecemeal.

IME Dr. will ask why you are there and who sent you so you are deluding yourself to think you can get a fair examination from an insurance designated IME Dr. through chicanery. What will you tell them about who will be responsible to pay the bill for that visit? Many attorneys send paralegals or associates to accompany clients on IME examinations. Speak to your counsel r get one quickly.
