Independent Medical Examinations are examinations performed on a patient at the request of an employer or attorney to obtain an unbiased third-party opinion.
When to expect an Independent Medical Examination?
If you sustained an injury or got sick while performing your job, your doctor will give you medical recommendations on what treatment options will best help your condition. You will also be advised on when you can return to work. If applicable to your case, your doctor will also discuss the likelihood and extent of any temporary or permanent disability.

However, in the event that your attorney or employer (or employer’s insurance company) disputes your condition, disability, or injuries, you will be asked to undergo an Independent Medical Examination with a third party doctor.
