Do I need to go to an IME for my personal injury lawsuit?
You filed a lawsuit for your personal injury and now your attorney is asking when youâ€™re available for an IME or independent medical examination. A natural first instinct is to question why you need to be examined by a doctor who does not know you or your medical history. Medical examinations are inherently personal and can be a bit intrusive. Itâ€™s reasonable for someone to have concerns about divulging their medical information to someone whom they are unfamiliar, so why is this happening?
