Our clients frequently ask whether they will have to attend an independent medical examination (IME). They are often fearful about attending a physical or mental evaluation by the employer/insurer’s expert.
An Employee must attend an employer/insurer’s reasonable request for an IME
According to Minnesota Statutes section 176.155, subdivision 1, “The injured employee must submit to examination by the employer’s physician, if requested by the employer, and at reasonable times thereafter upon the employer’s request.”
