IF YOU HAVE BEEN HURT ON THE JOB AND HAVE STARTED TO RECEIVE BENEFITS, YOU MIGHT NOT FEEL THAT YOU NEED TO WORK WITH AN ATTORNEY.
However, it is possible that the insurance company will send you a letter and request that you start and attend a panel qualified medical examination (QME).
The QME process can be very stressful for injured workers. Our attorneys at Thomas Employment Law Group, Inc., are familiar with the QME process and can be valuable resources for you if you find yourself in this situation. From our office in Huntington Beach, we are committed to fighting for California workers.
MAKE SURE YOU UNDERSTAND HOW THE PROCESS WORKS
The QME process is used to determine an injured worker's eligibility for benefits. The panel will evaluate the worker's injuries instead of his or her regular doctor. This can be a stressful time for you if you are worried about losing your injury benefits.
Typically, a list of three physicians will be presented to you. Each side gets to strike a name off the list, leaving the remaining doctor to be the qualified medical evaluator. Our attorneys have an extensive database of information on the QME physicians used in this process to ensure the best possible selection. We know what they think and how they are likely to decide a case.
