Med-Legal Evaluations

When an accident occurs, an initial medical examination needs to be performed by a doctor of the injured person. As an IME - Independent Medical Examiner, we are fully qualified with the medical knowledge and training in med-legal evaluations. We have years of experience and training, with credentials in the area of IMEs.

Medical Consultations

A medical consultation takes place between the employee and licensed physician to determine the examinations or procedures, if any, that are appropriate. Medical consultation is important because it is the main opportunity for the doctor to explore the patient’s problems and concerns identifying the cause and result of their issue.


Medical treatment is the management and care of a patient to combat a disorder. There are various types of medical treatments which include administering prescription medications, over-the-counter drugs, wound closing devices such as surgical glue, sutures and staples or any devices designed to immobilize parts of the body.
