Is the Phrase “Independent Medical Exam” an Oxymoron?

Two personal injury lawyers, Patrick A. Trudell and Ronald V. Miller share their thoughts about cross-examining Independent Medical Examination doctors on their respective blogs - Seattle Zen Legal Blog and Maryland Injury Lawyer Blog respectively. While Mr. Miller lists “random thoughts” about cross of the IME – found here, Mr. Trudell provides an outline that he used in a rear end collision case – found here.

Accidents can change the course of a life in a way that no monetary compensation can make up for. Cases of wrongful death are even more difficult to deal with for the obvious reason that a monetary value cannot be placed on life. However, we do not think that economic hardship should be added to a family’s difficulties in this situation. There are several aspects of your injury and its affect on your life that must be taken into consideration when deciding the amount of money you want to file a claim for. personal injury attorney ma
