Independent expert evaluation leads to informed claim resolution.

Workers’ Compensation Claims

Here are some of the reasons that workers’ compensation insurers contact us. Reviewers:

  • Determine if an injured worker is ready to return-to work;
  • Determine if a request should be certified;
  • Determine extent of a disability for a benefit award;
  • Evaluate a disability based on the AMA Impairment guidelines;
  • Need an impairment rating; and
  • Require a second opinion or “variance” IME or peer review.

Automotive Claims

Fortunately cars are safer, but accidents do occur. Insurers often require independent evaluation of automotive claims to determine the validity of an injury. Reviewers:

  • Address causality
  • Evaluate a claimant’s injury for severity;
  • Evaluate a claimant’s injury for legitimacy; and
  • Determine if a pre-existing injury exists and identify complications in light of the current injury.
  • Address treatment

Liability Claims

Liability evaluations can be requested as a result of any kind of accident. Our evaluations provide opinions on:

  • Causality
  • Apportionment
  • Return-to-work status
  • Daily living affected

Disability Claims

A disability IME determines if an individual is impaired, and the degree of impairment. The evaluator is focused on establishing the degree of functionality of which the individual is capable. The report addresses:

  • Apportionment
  • Return-to-work status
  • Daily living affected
