ABOUT IME GUARDS
IME Guards was started with one simple mantra; Protect the Plaintiffs.
In a fair world, IME physicians would be selected by a judge and give unbiased and truly independent opinions without worrying about pleasing their clients, the defense firm. In reality, IME physicians are often highly motivated to give opinions that please the defense firms who hire them. IME Guards protect against this abuse.
Our mission at IME Guards is to balance the scales of justice and do exactly what you would do were you to attend the IME.
Our patient representatives are well qualified and trained to witness IMEs, prevent claimants from being deposed by IME physicians and ensure plaintiff attorneys have an independent record of what transpired in the event that the IME physician's report is inaccurate.
