Defense Medical Exam (DME) /
Independent Medical Exam (IME)

An Independent Medical Examination can be anything but independent. Defense counsels rely heavily on DME in order to dispute the severity of a claim. Once the DME physician has prepared a report which unfairly depicts the plaintiff’s examination, there is little that can be done to refute this. Do not leave your client unaccompanied -- have a nurse advocate on your side at the DME. As and experienced nurse, I can assure the adherence to all civil codes of procedure and am witness to what actually occurred in the exam. My services include:

  • Execute your requirements for the exam
  • Prepare a concise, detailed report of what transpired
  • Provide video/audio recording of the complete examination
  • Testify about discrepancies between what occurred in the exam versus what the physician claimed occurred.
  • Prepare your client for the exam and protect them from revealing information that may impact the outcome of your case

Expert Witnesses

Strengthen your case by allowing me to locate the best medical and nursing expert. I have an extensive network of expert nurses, doctors, and allied health providers actively working in their field and up to date on the latest medical technology.

Doctors and nurses with experience in the field are best suited to explain complicated medical issues encountered in your case. They can speak directly to the merits of your claim or defense, making their opinions on key points of contention much stronger than that of an individual without health care expertise.

My services include:

  • Locating and interfacing with expert witnesses
  • Selecting the best expert witness to help get the results you need
  • Analyzing and comparing expert witness reports and other work products
  • Helping prepare witnesses and experts for deposition and trial
