Independent Medical Evaluation (IME)
Independent Medical Evaluations (or IMEs) are conducted to determine the cause and extent of an individual’s injury when liability is an issue. They do so by providing an objective third-party assessment of the examinee’s medical status.
This means that the process does not involve pre-existing doctor-patient relationships. The process is also not influenced by the source that refers the examination.
Regardless, the Independent Medical Examination will provide a detailed report about the patient’s:
- Timeline for recovery
- Treatment recommendations
- Expected recovery outcomes
These evaluations are thorough and detail-oriented, and examinees will be treated with the utmost respect and courtesy.
