Independent Medical Exams Are Not Really Independent

In personal injury actions, the defense have a right to compel the plaintiff to see a doctor of their choosing for an "Independent Medical Examination" (IMEs). While these examinations are so-called "independent," it is no hidden secret that they are not "independent" at all. Rather, the doctor is hired by the defendant for the exclusive purpose to draft a report and testify at trial on behalf of the defense.
