Important information to knoW
about the IME doctor:
THEY ARE HIRED BY THE INSURANCE COMPANY.
Insurance companies typically hire doctors who will dispute your need for future medical care, look for information to discredit your claim, say that your injuries are unrelated to the accident. and write a report to favor the insurance company, with no regard for your health and well-being.
THE IME DOCTOR IS NOT YOUR DOCTOR.
Do not expect neutrality. The insurance company is not hiring a doctor to help you get better. The vast majority of the time, IME reports will state that the patient doesn’t need additional treatment, even if the patient has not yet fully recovered.
