The facts about independent medical examinations

One way insurance companies may try to turn you down for an injury claim is to say that whatever injuries you have sustained are either exaggerated, misdiagnosed, or do not exist. Showing the results of medical exams from your Texas doctor that prove you have indeed been hurt can show you are deserving of benefits.

They want an independent medical examination conducted instead before they will proceed with your claim.
