Think twice about having an independent medical exam and be prepared if you have to have one

By John Singleton on December 15, 2020

When you file a claim after a car accident, dog bite, or similar injury, an insurance adjuster may try to convince you to take a lowball settlement offer, saying it is the best he can do. If you push back and demand fair compensation for your injuries, the insurance company may make you jump through hoops, which still may not lead to your getting what you are owed. This is especially true when an insurance company asks you to get an independent medical exam.
