Because these so-called “independent” medical exams can be so skewed, biased or flat-out wrong, your Denver car accident attorney often will have to spend money on another doctor to perform a truly independent exam. That way we can counter the halo effect – the tendency of many people put doctors on a pedestal.
With a skilled deposition, our Denver personal injury lawyers often can quickly poke holes in an IME. How much money did the doctor make from that insurance company last year? In the last five years? From other insurance companies? And there are other legal areas where we can challenge an IME doctor’s findings. If a case goes to trial, an objective medical report from our doctor and our ability to point out the conflict of interest the insurance company doctor has can neutralize the jury’s doctor halo thinking.
