Can Someone Come In the Room With Me During An IME?

Defense Medical - Question 1
Generally speaking most medical assessors will likely object to someone accompanying you into the assessment. You can certainly request that, and if you want someone to go in with you, you should probably raise this at the earliest possible time so that the assessor is given advance notice of the request, as they may object. There have been several legal cases in the past centering on whether the assessment can be recorded and the courts have outlined a number of criteria for when recording the assessment would be permitted, but it is certainly not automatically allowed. To discuss you specific circumstances, you should consult a lawyer experienced in dealing with medical assessments being conducted in insurance claims.
