In personal injury cases, one of the hardest things to prove to opposing counsel or the insurance company is how your client’s injuries affect their daily life – more specifically their ability to perform work-related tasks, activities of daily living, or leisure activities.
Many times opposing counsel will have an IME doctor evaluate your client only to produce a report stating that your client is perfectly fine and that they should have no problem whatsoever performing all of their life’s duties based on a 5-minute physical examination.
An examination of this length does not give the doctor any indication of how the client’s collision truly affects their livelihood and therefore gives the insurance company false data regarding the client’s status.
At Injury Reporting Consultants, we specialize in combating such unfairly weighted reports that pigeonhole your client as a malingerer or a symptom magnifier. Our reports are designed to help both parties and the insurance company understand the client’s true impairments and disabilities from their collision and not just if they can touch their toes or raise their arms over their head.
