Why You Should Avoid QME Exam

Don’t Attend the QME Exam if you Don’t Have an Attorney


Why you shoudn't attend the QME Evaluation:

If you are an injured worker who is not represented by an attorney and chose a Qualified Medical Evaluator (QME) from a state issued QME panel, but do not actually go to the QME doctors, you will have an opportunity to pick another QME if you hire an attorney.

If you attend and participate in the QME evaluation, then there are other ways to challenge the doctor's conclusions. However, this is usually an uphill battle, at best. Know this, picking the wrong QME can be disastrous to your California workers' comp case.

The lesson here is always consult with a California workers compensation attorney as soon as possible.
