Videography of IMEs

Videography proves to be particularly vital during independent medical examinations (IMEs). In New York, employers (and their insurance providers) can demand IME after an injured employee files a workers’ compensation claim. Despite their name, IMEs are hardly “independent.” They are carried out on behalf of insurance companies and paid for by those same insurance companies, self-insured employers, or the State Insurance Fund. Often, IMEs are used not to evaluate the employee’s injuries independently but to provide evidence supporting insurance companies. 

The unbiased video recording of these examinations can be critical in the outcome of a claim, providing a transparent and accurate account of the examination that can be invaluable in the case and reducing the risk of disputes or discrepancies later on.

Educating New York Clients on IME Videography Benefits

Our team at Schotter Millican goes the extra mile to educate our clients about the role of videography in injury cases. We introduce them to the rules and benefits of video recording IMEs as part of their case strategy. This knowledge empowers our clients, giving them the information they need to protect their rights when being examined by the insurance company’s doctor.

Understanding the importance of videography empowers our clients to keep these insurance company doctors honest and, if they are not honest, to prove that in court. Video recording IMEs a potent weapon to ensure that injured workers receive the benefits and compensation they deserve.

  • Can my employer fire me if I file a workers’ compensation claim?
    Your employer is not allowed to retaliate against you in any way when you file a workers’ compensation claim. This means they may not fire you, let you go, demote you, pass you over for a promotion, refuse to give you a raise, or otherwise take negative action against you because you have sought workers’ compensation benefits. If you believe your employer has unjustly retaliated against you, reach out to our team at Schotter Millican. In addition to appealing denied workers’ compensation claims, we handle complex employer retaliation cases related to workers’ compensation and wrongful termination.
  • Can I take video of my independent medical evaluation?
    Yes! Not only are you allowed to video your independent medical evaluation (IME), but you absolutely should. At Schotter Millican, we have a full team of videographers on staff. Where other law firms may recommend that you hire a videographer or, at best, refer a videographer you can use, we send a videographer to your IME completely free of charge. This helps keep doctors honest and works to ensure that you receive the best possible medical care.
  • How much does a workers’ compensation attorney cost?
    At Schotter Millican, our legal fees are dependent upon us recovering compensation for you. There are no upfront or out-of-pocket expenses when you hire our team and, in the unlikely event we do not recover a settlement or verdict on your behalf, you do not pay.
