It’s very common that during an automobile accident case, you will have to see what is known as an independent medical examiner. This is a medical examiner who works for the insurance companies, who is there to also determine the type of injuries that you have, and the extent of injuries that you have. It is very important that when you are seeing an independent medical examiner that you be very honest with them, and that you just simply explain to them all your symptoms and all your pains. This is something that is going to be very important down the road when it comes time for either your depositions and possibly your trial, if your case goes to trial.
The primary reason that it is so crucial for you to be honest with the independent medical examiner is because they will be able to tell if you are exaggerating your injuries or if you are trying to claim that a prior unrelated injury is a result of the accident. Providing the independent medical examiner with any false information can be detrimental to your case and make it so you don’t win your case or have severe impacts on any settlement you are able to obtain.
If you have been injured in an accident, whether it be a slip and fall, a car accident, or any other accident that occurred as the result of another person’s negligence, an experienced personal injury attorney can provide you with assistance.
