Purpose of Independent Medical Examination

It is in the best interest of your employer’s insurance company for you to be seen by an independent doctor.

The insurance company does this for several reasons, including the following:

  • To verify the treatment that your doctor giving to you is appropriate and not unnecessary
  • To verify that the facts you have provided relating to your accident are consistent with the injuries that you are experiencing

To provide a report assessing any permanent work restrictions, permanent disability or the need for the supportive medical care

Disputes are resolved through the hearing process and it is beneficial to have an experienced and knowledgeable attorney to represent you. Robert Wisniewski, Esq. has the necessary experience. Call his office at (602) 234-3700 to schedule a free Workers’ Compensation consultation.
