California Independent Medical Exams (IMEs) Exposed - Exploitation of the Plaintiff by Defense

This video summarizes what the plaintiff has to endure at the hands of a defense doctor at a California Independent Medical Exam - an "IME." Under California law, a defense attorney can have a plaintiff, who claims bodily injury, examined one time by a licensed physician of their own choosing in order to find possible weaknesses in the plaintiff's case. Often times, these so called IME's are used merely to exploit the plaintiff on things that have nothing to do with truth, fairness and justice as it does for protecting the insurance companies "bottom line."
