Understanding Independent Exams
Under the law, insurance carriers have the right to request periodic independent exams for workers' comp claims. Unfortunately, the term "independent" is deceiving. In most cases, the doctors providing the independent exams are not looking out for your best interests. They are paid by the carriers to conduct the exams, so you are not likely to receive an objective medical evaluation.
Your independent medical exam could negatively affect your pursuit of permanent disability or lost wages. By providing an insurance carrier skewed medical documentation, your independent exam could cause the carrier to:
- Deny your claim
- Underpay benefits
- Terminate benefits
Our Phoenix independent medical exams attorneys understand insurance carrier procedures and policies. With more than 40 years of combined experience, we can step in and protect your rights.
