What You Should Know About Independent Medical Exams

If you or a loved one has been seriously injured in a work-related accident, you are probably wondering how to find a workers' compensation lawyer in Phoenix who you can trust to fight for your rights and help you receive the benefits to which you may be rightfully owed. Our lawyers have more than 50 years of experience defending the rights of employees in all different types of workers' compensation cases. Our lead lawyer has received an AV Preeminent® Rating from Martindale-Hubbell®, a 10.0 Superb Rating on Avvo, and is one of the state's first board-certified workers' compensation law specialists. We understand the impact a work-related injury can have on a person's life and we are committed to doing everything we can to help each of our clients attain a positive outcome for their particular case.

Filing for workers' compensation benefits is not always an easy task. Any minor error made on your claim, a failure to properly inform your employer or a delay in seeking medical attention after your injury could result in a denial of benefits. Another aspect of workers' compensation claims you should be aware of is that many workers' compensation insurance carriers require that an independent medical exam be performed both prior to an employee being approved for benefits and periodically during the course of the benefit period. These allegedly "independent" medical exams are not as unbiased as you would like to believe.

In most cases, the doctors who perform these types of medical exams are doing so at the direction of the workers' compensation insurance carrier. As a result, you could find yourself in a position where your benefits are being dramatically undervalued, your benefits have been terminated or your claim has been outright denied. Having a Phoenix workers' compensation lawyer from our firm helping you to navigate through each stage of the workers' compensation process could make all the difference in the successful outcome of your claim. To find out more about how our firm can help you maximize your workers' compensation claim, contact a Phoenix workers' compensation lawyer at our firm today.

The Fendon Law Firm, P.C. is also available to represent clients in Flagstaff and Prescott, AZ.
