Disability Insurance Litigation Lawyer Discusses Independent Medical Exams

A Disability insurance litigation lawyer can explain that the insurance company may send you for an independent medical examination as part of your process of filing a claim for disability insurance.

About Independent Medical Exams

An insurance claim lawyer can explain that insurance companies pay for such exams. As a doctor conducts the examination, it is important to understand that this doctor does not work for you. Instead, an insurance attorney can explain that such a doctor is often looking for reasons that would justify the insurance company’s denial of your claim for benefits.


A Disability insurance litigation lawyer may offer several suggestions to make the most of this experience. For example, the claimant may write notes that are contemporaneous to the exam in which he or she records what transpires while being examined. Another option may be to bring a witness to the exam with you in order to have an objective perspective. Your witness may be able to write the notes or make a video or audio recording with permission.
