Lewiston Idaho Work Injury – Independent Medical Examination?

If you’ve been hurt at work in Idaho, the work comp insurance company may schedule you for an “independent medical evaluation” or IME.

There is nothing independent about the medical evaluation. It is more of an insurance medical evaluation. The doctor will be hand-picked by the insurance company.

If your Idaho workers compensation insurance adjuster schedules you for an “insurance medical evaluation,” then your compensation and medical benefits may be terminated.

Insurance company doctors often focus on pre-existing conditions, prior injuries, or say that injuries you feel were caused by your Idaho work unjury are unrelated to the Idaho work accident.

Our attorneys are familiar with most of the doctors in Idaho hired by workers compensation insurance carriers. If you have lost your Idaho workers compensation benefits because of an insurance medical evaluation, or if you have been scheduled for an insurance medical evaluation, contact an experienced Idaho workers compensation attorney to help protect your rights.

Idaho Workers’ Compensation Injuries

North Idaho is home to some of the most beautiful scenery in the world and some of the most dangerous jobs in the state.

According to the Idaho Industrial Commission, approximately 45,000 workers are injured every year in Idaho. Despite suffering a valid workers’ compensation claim, many Idaho workers will have their work comp benefits denied. Workers’ compensation insurance companies often dispute all or part of a valid claim.

Insurance companies may deny medical bills, lost wages (temporary total disability), permanent partial impairment, permanent disability in excess of impairment, and retraining. In our experience, Idaho work comp insurance carriers routinely deny benefits that should be paid.
