An independent medical evaluation is an evaluation of an individualâ€™s medical condition by an independent medical examiner to determine if the individual qualifies for disability benefits or workersâ€™ compensation claims. The services of an IME are usually sought by insurance companies, employers, benefits providers, lawyers, or HR managers to determine whether to approve or decline benefits, coverage, or settlements to an individual.
This process involves examining the medical records of a patient to determine if any errors or omissions were made by the healthcare provider. Medical records review can be used to help determine liability, causation, and damages in cases involving medical malpractice, personal injury, or workers' compensation.
This process involves collecting and organizing evidence, researching relevant case law, and developing a strategy for presenting the case in court. The goal of trial preparation is to ensure that the case is presented in the most compelling and persuasive way possible, and that the client's interests are protected at all times.
In this process, a qualified expert in the relevant field is asked to review the case and provide an opinion on the standard of care, causation, and damages. Expert case reviews can be used to support or challenge the opinions of other experts, as well as to provide the court with a clear and objective understanding of complex medical issues.
