Hello. This is Ty Wilson. I am a Georgia workers’ compensation attorney practicing law in the State of Georgia and our video topic for today is If I’ve been scheduled an Independent Medical Evaluation from the insurance company do I have to go? The short answer is it depends. You want to really reach out to a Georgia workers’ compensation attorney. You may have some rights and some abilities to potentially fight going to the Independent Medical Evaluation however it is very fact specific. Typically speaking if you do not go to an Independent Medical Evaluation the employer and/or insurer can stop providing you medical benefits, income benefits and a whole host of other things so you’re gonna want to be able to file a hearing and move forward with litigation because that’s likely what’s going to have to happen if you are required to go to an Independent Medical Evaluation. Now there are rules and procedures as far as how much time they have to provide you notice and so forth, however if they don’t follow that they’ll just reschedule the Independent Medical Evaluation if they want it bad enough. So it’s highly recommended that you reach out to a Georgia workers’ compensation attorney quickly and determine what your rights are. We hope that you found this information helpful and we hope that you’ll come check out our other videos and if you have any specific questions we hope that you’ll come visit us on our web site or give us a call at the number below.
