Have some Questions?
Your request for an IME service will be processed as soon as possible. Our staff makes every effort to schedule an examination, when required, within your particular time constraints. We will work with you to compile the medical and other records that will be the basis of the report. Once we have all of the necessary documentation, imaging (X-rays, CDs containing MRIs, CT scans, etc.) and an exam has been performed (if necessary), delivery of our report is very timely. Throughout the process, you will have full access to the MedicoLegal medical/legal support staff at all times to help answer your questions and keep your case moving efficiently.
MedicoLegal reports include a thorough review of the presented medical record, tests and imaging with a summary and synopsis of those records, followed by a complete analysis and evidence-based opinion by an expert physician(s) of the appropriate specialty or specialties.
All of our physicians are adept at both depositions and courtroom testimony. We have decades of experience both inside and outside of the courtroom and are fully supported by our Chief Medical Officer, Dr. Jon Tucker.
The locations of IMEs and depositions are handled individually based upon the location and availability of the physician expert and the jurisdiction of the claim. Our headquarters is in the North suburbs of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, easily serving a large population of Pennsylvania, Ohio and West Virginia. We have physician experts in regions around the country ranging from Philadelphia and Ohio to Texas and more. In most instances we can arrange for an exam to take place in your area.
We seamlessly facilitate meetings and depositions in our offices, which include full video conferencing capabilities, digital projectors, conference rooms and free Wi-Fi, virtually eliminating any distance between our clients and ourselves.
Fees vary depending on the types of services provided. Call Kerry Smith, Director of Operations, to discuss a fee schedule at (412) 276-6241. Payment must be made in advance via credit card or check.
