Independent Medical Exams for Work Comp Claims

Trust Your Work Injury Case to Our Indianapolis Workers’ Compensation Lawyers

Independent medical exams are often conducted as part of work injury reviews. In order to maintain accurate records and get a thorough an account of what happened, many employers require that the injured person see a medical examiner they have not previously been to. This ensures that the doctor-patient relationship will not benefit the injured person in an unfair way and will not hurt the employer needlessly. However, independent medical exams are often costly and time-consuming.

If you have been asked to undergo independent medical exams but were not properly compensated for them through your workers’ compensation benefits, the Indianapolis work injury lawyers of Wagner Reese can assist you in getting the compensation you deserve to cover these extra medical expenses.
