WHY CHOOSE US?

IME’s and the doctors are anything but independent. The insurance companies carefully and deliberately pick the doctors they want to perform specific evaluations. These doctors know if their report does not negate the clients injury claims and is not favorable to the insurance company, they will not be referred cases to review. We will protect your clients from a doctors report that may be inaccurate or harmful to your clients claim. Our companions are trained professionals and will protect your clients from a doctors report that may be inaccurate or harmful to your clients claim.

THREE THINGS YOU SHOULD KNOW ABOUT IME's

THE DOCTORS ARE NOT INDEPENDENT

The doctors are chosen and paid by the insurance company. They have incentive to minimize your injuries and provide an opinion that is more favorable for the insurance company.

EXAMINATIONS ARE USED TO DENY CLAIMS

If an insurance company has requested an IME, they are usually looking for a way to deny your claim. Dishonest IME decisions can be devestating for people hurt by the negligence of others.

YOU CAN BE REPRESENTED AT YOUR IME

Evidence of what the doctor did or didn't do during the examination may be needed to prove the examination was conducted unfairly. We take note of all relevant details.

CUSTOMER REVIEWS

"I would highly recommend Safa and her team at IME Companions for any large plaintiff's personal injury law firm. I used to have individual members of my own staff accompany my clients to their defense medical exams. However, my client base grew to a point that it was no longer logistically reasonable to utilize members of my own staff to accompany plaintiff's to the exams and was glad to have found IME Companions because they are the absolute best fit for my firm. Safa and her team are on top of innumerable appointments every day and manage client coordination in multiple languages, scheduling, transportation and accompaniment to the appointment and then I receive a detailed and thorough report from them almost immediately. They are reachable whenever I need them for information and are extremely reliable, diligent and effective. They consistently go above and beyond. I am extremely satisfied with our working relationship and would highly recommend them to any large personal injury plaintiff's law firm."

As the Managing Attorney at a large personal injury law firm like Subin Associates LLP, we pride ourselves in making sure that our clients are taken care of by the best people throughout the duration of their lawsuit. One very important step in a lawsuit is the IME or Independent Medical Examination which requires our client to appear before a doctor on behalf of the defendants. Frequently our clients have been taken advantage of by these doctors and therefore we found it necessary to have our clients accompanied by individuals who will look out for our clients and make sure that nobody takes advantage of them and everything goes smoothly. IME Companions has been the absolute best at protecting the interests of our clients. They are dedicated to the needs of our clients and have gone above and beyond for them as well as my firm. Specifically, Safa Gelardi the CEO of IME Companions, has been so instrumental in making sure our clients are treated with the utmost care. She is involved in every matter where an IME is needed. She makes sure that the client is notified of the exam and is there on time. She additionally makes sure that the client is being treated fairly by the doctors retained by the defendants. She simply fights for our clients. Safa also manages to visit our firm on a frequent basis to ensure that we are satisfied with their services. I would highly recommend IME Companions; they are the absolute best.
