What Is the Purpose of a Medical-Legal Evaluation?

Medical-legal evaluations are helpful for plaintiffs and defendants who need a medical expert to attest to the facts of a case. A comprehensive medical evaluation by an expert helps support your claim when an insurance company requires more information. The doctor determines the severity of an injury or condition, and the level of care you need.

Some common examples of when you may need an evaluation include if you have been involved in an auto accident with an injury, experienced a work injury, or are dealing with a chronic condition caused by your work responsibilities or environment. These types of cases benefit from an expert providing a medical-legal evaluation in Bellevue, WA.

What Can I Expect?

When you need a medical-legal evaluation, the doctor will review all medical records and injury reports related to the case. They look for any inconsistencies in reports, and any evidence of medical negligence or malpractice. The evaluation also includes a physical exam and possibly an evaluation of what your physical capabilities (or limitations) are with the injury or condition in question.

Be prepared to answer questions about your condition or symptoms, and even any emotional distress from an accident or injury. You should also ask the doctor questions about your treatment options, and how long you will need medical care.

With a medical-legal evaluation, your doctor can determine the severity of an injury and how long you should need care for the injury or special accommodations at work. They can provide accurate reports and testimony when needed to support your case and ensure you can get the care you need.
