IME Lied And I called Him Out
#1
Hello, I was injured at work about 6 months ago. My employer is self insured so that makes it even more fun Sad . I went for am IME that lasted a total of about 4 minutes. The doctor didn't even ;ay a finger on me, he looked at 2 pictures that i showed him and that was it. He told me I needed to continue therapy and no work. When I got the report it was a complete lie. I called him out on it via email and he instantly resubmitted a new report. Can I sue this doctor? is there anything I can do about this?

some states have IME qualification lists and allow for complaints. contact your states work comp agency.
you can contact your local district atty and file a fraud complaint. your county/state medical board may accept complaints as well.
I doubt you have the expertise to handle a law suit on your own. if not, you can sue if you can find an atty willing to handle it.
trouble is the damages are nothing and that doesn't leave a lot for their fee but you may find an atty that'll do it pro bono.
you might have a better chance at success with any of the above actions if the doctor did not correct themselves.
